D870 1963-10-19 Hayes & Harlington
D870 Zulu has just passed Hayes & Harlington with the Wood Lane to Plymouth milk empties on October 19, 1963.
David J. Hayes. comments "A superb period image. The 3C05 service to Plymouth had been amended by October 1968 to depart at 15:10 from Kensington Olympia, which was still part of the WR until its absorption into the LMR in February 1970 (such a working to the West Country would then be regarded as an inter-regional service and given the letter "V" in the headcode to reflect this). "Kenny-O" was a major operating hub (gathering and distribution point) for London's milk traffic before such activity transferred to Acton Yard in the early 1970s. Such workings by then had been re-designated as Class 6 services.
