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.
