28/11/82: 47571 at Stafford on the morning of Sunday 28 November 1982, having just been released from the front of the 1042 Manchester-Euston. 87006, which was in tow, went forward. Back in the early '80s, everything out of Manchester on a Sunday morning was dragged as far as Stafford, although Euston trains only ran at two hourly intervals. The last dragged service was the 1447 Manchester-Euston which, unlike the other workings, was only dragged as far as Stoke. Cross Country services were also approximately two hourly and were hauled by diesel loco's throughout, the last one off Manchester being the 14xx to Birmingham and beyond and the last into Manchester still with a diesel on was the the morning Gatwick - Manchester train (which was always 47537!).
