Class 25s at Clapham Junction
Class 25 observations at Clapham Junction
April 1978 - March 1979

This page primarily details the use of Class 25 locomotives on two weekday daytime Willesden - Norwood Junction -Willesden cross-London freight workings between April 1978 and March 1979. There are gaps in the dates documenting this period but hopefully it will provide some interest in these short routine inter-regional workings.

These workings used the Central side when passing through Clapham Junction. The information on this page primarily refers to two out and back freight workings, to simplify the details only the date, locomotive and passing times (southbound to Norwood Junction, then northbound to Willesden) at Clapham Junction are recorded. If both workings were observed the 2nd, later working has two asterisks (**) after the locomotive number. Most of the time a single Class 25 handled the workings, exceptions are noted in the text when the unexpected occurred.

09.55am Willesden to Norwood and the 12.10pm Norwood to Willesden (northbound working retimed to 12.00pm circa July 1978).
12.25pm Willesden to Norwood and the 14.10pm Norwood to Willesden**.
(19.05 Willesden - Norwood)

With thanks to Alan Paterson for providing these observations, thank you!

Friday December 1st: 25264** (TO) 1.58pm & 3.12pm
Monday December 4th: 25193 12.04pm (return working not recorded)
The reason for the delays to 25193 this day revolved around 47123 working the late running 01.00 Westbury - Salfords, reportedly weighing 1,200 tons. At about 6am Latchmere box requested that before passing the train off to Clapham, confirmation was needed to ensure that this train would not be impeded as it passed through Clapham with green signals to be set prior to departing Latchmere. The damp morning, a 1 in 36 rising gradient and the tight reverse curves up to Platform 17 at Clapham Junction suggested this train would need all the help it could get. With the route set for the passage of the stone train the down local passenger services would incur delays should the train encounter difficulties. Which it did, taking at least thirty minutes to travel from Latchmere box to the reverse curves on top of the bridge that carries the line over Falcon Road, just off the north end of platform 16/17.

In light of the lack of progress of the stone train the route was set back to allow the Down suburban services to clear, whilst the 2nd man from 47123 arrived at Clapham Junction B box to request assistance since the stone train could make no more forward progress and was in danger of slipping backwards toward Latchmere box. In response to the urgent request 33208 was sent from Selhurst, reversing at Latchmere to gain access to the rear of the stone train, which then dropped back down to Latchmere before making a second attempt at getting through Clapham Junction. Shortly after 10am the stone train cleared Clapham Junction, some four hours after its first departure from Latchmere Junction.

With the stone train having cleared Clapham Junction five delayed freights quickly followed, powered by a Class 37, three Class 47s and 25193 on the Norwood Junction freight.

The next day, December 5th the 11.00 Norwood - Temple Mills passed Clapham Junction behind 47123 at 11.51am, normally a Class 33 working.

The previously mentioned 47123 passed through Clapham Junction on a Special (additional) 10.55 Acton - Norwood freight, however it failed on the bank shortly after 3pm whilst approaching Clapham Junction and required the assistance of 33056, departing about 3.45pm. 47123 was later noted running light engine in the path of the 1.12pm Norwood to Acton, passing Clapham Junction very late at 4.46pm.

At the end of the same week on Friday January 26th sister loco 47124 working a Special freight from Westbury to Salfords, failed on the bank, with 33030 sent to assist, departing Clapham Junction at 1.17pm. 47124 returned with the 1.12pm Norwood to Acton, passing Clapham Junction at 2.39pm. Presumably the Down working was terminated at Norwood to go forward with 33030, to allow 47124 to work back home within its crew's hours?

This third week of January produced extended periods of wintry weather, with snow and ice causing chaos in many parts of the country, including the Clapham Junction area, possibly the reason why there were no observations of the Willesden - Norwood - Willesden freights.
