What seems like only days ago, has infact been a considerable amount of years. The Olympians are gone along with the Gardner. Yes it is a point I have gone over far too many times in the last few weeks but it is a major thing in the life of out little depot.
Picture of the best of times is of all the sisters together having Sunday off in Torpoint depot. The sisters were always looked after well and put into dry storage whenever possible.
From left to right C417 HJN, C412 HJN, C413 HJN, C409 HJN
Its also nice just to note all the minor differences they have picked up over there lifes. None of them are quite the same, particularly C413 HJN with no top lights. Also C412 the only one to have a grill on the engine cover.
The LAST Olympian video is now uploaded. Also to note I thought long and hard for the right music for the occation, hope you share my view with this piece.
Goodbye Essex Girls
(also if anyone is interested C417 HJN has been reported at Henry Flashmen's Steel Merchant in Gunnislake, I may try to make a quick trip up there to see if I can track her!)
