On 1st July 1977 I'd decided to have a look at Newcastle. The weather
in Manchester in the morning was dreadful. It wasn't a great deal better
in Newcastle. The engine of our train, 46047, expired at Durham and ther
was a considerable delay before the driver managed to get it going again
(after, commendably, finding and cleaning a dirty fuse).So arrival at
Newcastle was much later than expected.
