Darlington

61600 at Darlington shed during its brief erroneous stopover in July 1958. David Whittaker recalls... 61600 'Sandringham' caused something a a stir amongst the local enthusiast population by arriving at Darlington in the summer of 1958 (although it appears to have been consigned there by mistake and was later sent on to Doncaster to be scrapped). On first hearing the news of 61600's arrival I mounted my trusty Triumph Palm Beach and furiously pedalled the nine miles, scouring the Darlington shed and works areas, but alas too late!
