47501 and 47810 go North, Friday August 22nd 2014

Another enjoyable trip North of the Border from Compass Tours. From Nuneaton (0503)

47810 hauled load 12 plus 47501 dor to Peterborough via Leicester. 47501 then powered North via the ECML (apart from a  short Gasgoine Wood deviation) to Edinburgh and Dundee (1529). The return was with 47810 to Posh for 47501 back to Nuneaton (0237)

The Stock included some ex Arriva Wales mk IIs which offered a quality ride.
