But briefly reopened in Feb 97 or 98 Shocked

477xx failed in the old station on 1V35, Derby Plymouth Cross Country service. 1Z99 (rescue engines) formed of 2 class 67s approached. Some die hard spoon goons (47 bashers) exited the train via the guards van to avoid the General Motors rubbish. This was the first class 1 working for 67s.
