Well if anyone wants to criticise me they can.

Around 2 years or so ago, I bought a Blue Class 25. It's not important what the Running Number is or the manufacturer.

I didn't know it at the time of purchase, but after a short time, it came to light that it was in fact the Locomotive which failed hauling a passenger train in October 1979 at Invergowrie, Scotland.

Circumstances which I won't go into led to the following train hauled by a Class 47 to run into the rear of the failed train, killing 3 passengers I think, and the Driver and Secondman on the Class 47.

Being a newly qualified Secondman at the same depot, I didn't really know the Driver at all, but the young Secondman was an aquantance of mine, and in fact I still see his brother from time to time.
