Here are 25122 and 25117 with "The Jolly Fisherman" for Skegness on 31st July 1976, from the state of 25122 it would seem that the locomotive has been at work on lime or stone trains!

A week later 25117 was in action again and paid a visit to the North Wales Coast with the Nottingham - Llandudno service. The train is seen at Derby on 7th August 1976.

25320 leading 25277 await departure from Derby with the 1425 Blackpool - Leicester on 7th July 1979. Thanks to Paul Griffin for the train details, the service often arrived in Chesterfield well ahead of time and was routed via Derby. Indeed on this day the next stop after Derby was Spondon (!)

Top link duty for 25269. The locomotive is seen at Derby on 12th June 1979 in charge of a Birmingham - Newcastle service. It is not known just how far the locomotive worked the train North of Derby!
