    Thanks for the photos Mike.

    A couple of years back there were a couple of yellow Merseyrail painted class 73's parked at Birkenhead North depot. They were looking a bit neglected. Any idea what they were used for (I'm assuming general maintenance/permanent way) or where they went (again, I'm assuming they were cut up)?

    Cheers.

    EDIT: Googled it...

    Merseyrail formerly had four Class 73 electro-diesel locomotives for shunting, sandite trains, engineering works and other departmental duties; two of these had been repainted in the yellow livery of the previous franchise holder. These locomotives were sold to a preservation company in 2002

    usually they where saw out during the winter times when the "sandite" trains ran to de ice the track,


    theres a pic of one here sandwiched between an old class 501 unit for diicing at kirkdale in the late 90s
