97272 ETHEL3 Eastfield 231083 GE272

97272 'Ethel 3' former class 25 25314 in the company of 37085 steaming away at Eastfield TMD on 23 October 1983. Three class 25s were converted to electric train heating ex-locomotives (ETHEL). They received a blue/grey livery in an effort to match the coaching stock of the day, and later 97252 received the Inter City 'Swallow' red stripe livery. When the Class 37/4's took over services in Scotland they were displaced to steam workings south of the border. 97252, converted from 25314, was scrapped, along with its other 2 classmates by MC Metals, Glasgow, in 1994, 23/10/83. ©Gordon Edgar/Rail Photoprints
