The final cut


The last ever trip from Birch Coppice trundles Bescotwards past Aldridge today behind loco 66199, having cleared out the terminal of wagons.

The end of an era. Yet again the lorry wins. This is despite G36 being one of EWS's most reliable services.

Enjoy the memories of the 37s.

RIP 6G36/6G42. 2002-2007.

Nice to see 37194 working the last ever trip from Birch Coppice, eh Guru?

From a personal point of view I wished they'd finished the train months ago and I wouldn't have ended up in A&E. Oooh ouch!

Thought i'd wind everyone up by quoting 37194 instead of 66194 working the last train,,, but as it turned out 66199 was in charge... !
Just think of all those 37 workings you missed in November !
ps There still might be the odd special train to the Coppice...

Oh well whatever was on the front its a shame to see it finish.

A real shame. However, DRS went into the Coppice today on a road learner....
