Can anyone help please. I have a photo of a Temple Meads bound train with a 1V34 headcode on a Class 47 [D1572 I believe ] passing Barrow Road coaling plant circa 1964/5.
I cannot find details of 1V34 but am aware 1V33 was a Cornishman headcode. Could this be a relief to it?

Hi Robin,

The closest timetable I have to hand is 18th April 1966 to 5 March 1967. 1V33 was still the headcode of the Cornishman 0702 Bradford to Penzance, 1V34 seems to be Saturdays Only summer working, 0900 Sheffield to Paignton. The Cornishman got to Bristol East at 1206, 1V34 followed it down from Mangotsfield and made it to Bristol East at 1213.

I hope that helps.

Alex

Back to the query regarding 1V36. If the photo was taken in 1967 - 1968, this headcode applied to the 07:08 Derby - Cardiff. If this was the case, the I suspect the photo referred to could be of the Peak sporting the wrong headcode for the train it was hauling into Bristol. It is however possible that if the photo was taken in the mid-60s then 1V36 was the 07:07 Bradford F.Sq. - Bristol service, arriving in Bristol around 12:45 pm. I have numerous sightings of this train passing Charfield on various dates around 12:23 pm.

As to three or four characters being displayed on a steam loco, a train register I hold from Charfield signal-box dated 1964, shows (in the remarks column on the down page) times at which passenger and parcels trains were reported ex Ashchurch and Gloucester. Although in some cases such entries were abbreviated to 'Corn', 'Dev' or even the more cryptic 'M' (down Newcastle mail), 'P' (parcels) or 'X' (generic express), in general they appeared as V31, V33, V38 etc, omitting the train class ('1'). The preceding '1' would have been considered superfluous because only passenger and parcels trains were reported to the box by Gloucester control. However, as per LMS practice, the headcodes carried (if at all and mainly on Summer Saturdays) by North-East to South-West steam-hauled expresses were always relatively small 4-character pasted codes as per the roller-blind diesel headcodes. (Prior to summer 1961, these would have taken the form 'M319' with the M signifying Midland lines (remember that the Birmingham - Bristol Midland route was LMR until 1957) with the '319' being a unique identifier for the particular train). It is interesting that the WR introduced the standard 4-character headcode for its own trains before the inter-regional trains from the NER/ER/LMR but of course their ex-GW locos continued to carry the headcode in three-character fashion.
