SCARA News and Reviews - April 2023

Just to show what a resilient lot our SCARA members are please do check out the review (with photos) of the recent Southampton regional get-together organised by Jim Baxter and Julian Bevis.

And for a piece of history take a look at the 35 year anniversary of the naming of locomotive 37358 at Southampton.

1.  Locomotive 37358 named “P&O Containers” at Southampton on 13 April 1988

Chair of the SCARA committee, David Cross, has kindly provided this article about a significant milestone in the operation of the Southampton container terminal and P&O Containers' partnership with Freightliner from 35 years ago.


2.  Southampton regional get-together 13/04/2023: Review

Coincidentally the anniversary of the naming of the Locomotive fell on the same day as the regional get-together in Southampton.  Thanks to Mike Chapman for the review and to Jim Baxter and Geoff & Sue Lock for the photos.
