Over the weekend of 14th and 15th of July in 2007, Barrow Hill held a Class 20 gala to mark 50 years since the class 20 or English Electric 1000hp Type 1 had entered into traffic with British Railways.

In 1986 this Class 89 no.89001, was the one and only prototype locomotive for a large BR fleet of locomotives that was never ordered.
In September 1989 this class 89 was given the name Avocet. In 1992 the loco was put up for sale and sold to a team of Brush engineers, before being sold again to GNER who used it between 2000 and 2003.
It was moved to Barrow Hill in 2004. In 2006 The AC Locomotive Group purchased the locomotive and painted it in 2007 in the original InterCity Executive livery.

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Barrow hill engine shed

Today Virgin East Coast, Grand Central and DRS are just some of the names on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
