Hello everyone! :D

Returning this week to trains, we look back on the tale of a series of three locomotive classes that formed the backbone of the Midland Mainline between London, Leicester, Derby, Sheffield and Nottingham, as well as being a major part of other vital railway corridors in Britain.

However, despite there being nearly 200 of these reliable and sturdy engines in service, the story of the famous Class 44, 45 and 46 Peak locomotives is one that is frequently forgotten, in the face of more famous designs like the Class 37s, 47s, 50s and Deltics.
