Bletchley, Jan 4th 1982

A busy morning at Bletchley, Monday January 4th 1982

An interesting morning log from Bletchley from the days when Inter Citys called there, Milton Keynes station was yet to open, Cravens DMU’s, a single 37 on the ARC, the usual “cans” , a “roarer” on MGR’s making up an impressive total of 57 locos.

There are 6 phots embeded in the text, yes they are of Kodak Instamatic quality

A quick run across the platforms and footbridge allowed a reasonable phot of 37185 returning to the Western with “ARC” stone empties from Wolverton. A single 37 was unusual possibly because the Xmas/New Year break meant it was just empties to return West on January 4th 1982
