Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
C.F. Booths Rotherham scrap yard I_icon_minitimeSun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

I had a look at the daddy of all scrap yards recently.
C.F.Booths at Rotherham, It's an amazing and massive site for sure
C.F. Booths Rotherham scrap yard 3632386113_b20a5ec95d
The yard has it's own rail sidings connected to the mainline.
Most trains are delivered to the yard by low loader these days though.
The loco starage yard is on the left of the map.
The line up of locos in the middle are in the stripping area. Once all reuseable parts are removed the locos get towed to the cutting area.
Withdrawn engines can languish for years in sidings on the rail network, once they move to Booths there cut up within weeks of arrival.

GROWLER POWER!

The unmistakeable profile of an English Electric class 37, languishes in the sidings at C.F Booth breakers yard in Rotherham.
Thankfully it's not quite the end of the road for the veteran engine.
37046 has been secured for preservation on a heritage railway.
The class 37's were built from 1960-1965 they remained solid workhorses until 2004.

The floodlights of Rotherham football club can be seen in this shot!

THE REAPER COMETH!

37798 and 37692 have only days to live!
The scrapman prepares them for there final date with the cutters torch.
The maintenance hatches are up, all reuseable parts have been stripped by this time.
These veteran workhorses will soon be reduced to piles of twisted scrap metal

A classic feature of the early English Electric locomotives was the raked back windows and nose end style.
The nose hatches of 37692 have been lifted while it is stripped of any valueable parts.

Soon to be reduced to a twisted pile of scrap metal.
Probably reincarnated into cars and fridges!

The shunter storage yard with 08510, 08955 and 08919 stand in the storage yard.
08919 has been bought for preservation
C.F. Booths Rotherham scrap yard 3621456007_f62e5b15da
A nice surprise was to find a shunter still in B.R blue livery.
Even better to see it was 08510.
I remember this shunter been allocated to Holbeck depot in Leeds in the early 1980's.

Booths have 4 or 5 of there own shunters they use to move locos and coaching stock around the yard.
The mainline connection is a little further under the bridge.
It has a 'derailment catch point' only operable by Network rail.
No doubt they don't want of this little shunter trundling along the East coast main line by mistake :mrgreen:

I have a thing for painted 'Hazard lines' They look good.
I couldn't resist this colourful little chap.
I forget his name, but one was called 'Little Blue' Smile

I have a load more scrap loco pics here
