As an addendum to a previous post from 24rth September 2010 entitled AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY of the WOODHEAD ROUTE I have come across a link via Martin Lewis's website (of Money Saving Expert fame) , of a free to enter competition to win one of six books:
If you cut and paste the above link into your browser you will see details of how to enter the competition but don't bother because I've copied and pasted it below, where you will also find a suggested answer:
E: 31/10 Woodhead (railway) book
Six copies of An Illustrated History of the Woodhead Line to give away. Simply answer this question:
How many Class 76s were converted to air-brake only operation.
I believe the answer is 9 but I am open to contradiction.
HOW TO ENTER: Visit www.ianallanmagazines.com/ricomp and complete the entry form with competition name (Woodhead), your answer and full contact details. Or, send your answer, subscriber number (if applicable), and full contact details on a postcard to
Woodhead book Competition,
