Last NR ‘31s’ at Mangapps
Two former Network Rail Class 31s have been saved for preservation.
Both 31105 and 31233 have moved by road to the Mangapps Farm Railway from Derby. They join a mainline fleet that includes 31430 Sister Dora and 47579 James Nightall GC, although both the ‘31/4’ and ‘47’ are away from the Essex site at the moment.
This means NR has now sold all its Class 31s, with 31285 and 31465 owned by Harry Needle Railroad Company.
