Whilst growing up in Crewe in the early eighties i can remember hearing all-sorts of trains around Crewe at night and in the daytime. I lived near Crewe Works and could hear various Diesel classes such as 20s, 37s, 47s,33's and even HST's. I can remember electric traction such as 85's, 86's and 87's making there unique noise's, my favourite loco was 87015 ' Howard Of Effingham ' it's the only loco name that sticks in my mind from all them years ago. The Crewe- Manchester line made such a loud noise when trains went over the flashes just after Sydney Bridge Junction, due to the Subsidence caused by the old salt mines. Now when i listen at night i can hear nothing but the boring noise of Pendolinos,and LM 350's. What memories do you have of Railway noise from years ago, and where from?
