Railway Pictorial Publications Railtours: Class 74 Farewell 3/12/77
BR Southern Region class 74 'HB' Bo-Bo electro-diesel no. 74003 at Romsey where the already late-running excursion was further delayed for an hour because the loco's power equipment had overheated. Although a replacement loco had to be found later it's to BR's credit that nearly all the time lost earlier in the day was recouped by the time the participants arrived at Waterloo in the evening.
