45136 Egginton Junction 11 September 1990

A very dilapidated 45136 stands with five withdrawn classmates at Egginton Junction on 11 September 1990. The other locos are (in order): 45146, 45125, 45111, 45126, & 45148. The only one of this lot to escape the cutters torch is the third one down the line, 45125, which is happily now preserved at the Great Central Railway. 45136, still largely intact here, except for its centre windscreen met its end at MC Metals at Glasgow in April 1992. This line of locos was left at this remote location between June 1990 and March 1992. Presumably the threat of vandalism was less at a rural location.
