Approaching Manchester Vic, 020483

02048340177n25284r.jpgAll eyes up front as 40177 dragging a switched off 25284

approaches Vic with the 1149 ex Bangor. The 25 had rescued a earlier failure and the forwarding driver from Chester apparently wasnt passed on 25's...yer right!! Never did get 25284 for haulage.

 

Montrose, 290783

29078347411r.jpgThe painted tyres as flower beds were familiar to us in Scotland and in Scottish region light blue livery too. 47411 is on the 0810 Newcastle - Aberdeen

 

Newcastle, 011083

01108325051n239r.jpg"Fog on the Tyne" 25051 and 25239 approach Newcastle Central with the return "Burntisland Bellower" tour to Sheffield.

Eastleigh, 050515 thanks to "MIB"

Old Linslade, 040615

040615350111n377701r.jpgUnits meet at old Linslade "dip". 350111 is on a Euston - Birmingham "fast", 377701 on a M.Keynes - South Croydon service.

Holyhead, 090615

09061567012r.jpgHolyhead sunrise, 67012 with the Up "WAG" 0533 Holyhead - Cardiff. The train and plush Mk IIIs will reverse at Chester for Wrexham and the Marches.

Hereford, 090615

09061560092r.jpgMarches freight is now pretty thin and with a high density of unit traffic sees most freight recessed at Hereford. 60092 is arriving on the centre road for a booked 50 minute layover on Shotton - Margam steel traffic.

 

Old Linslade, 100615

10061592030r.jpgBridge 139 adds some depth to this 0A06 Crewe-Wembley view of 92030. This "conditional" turn can produce anything from a loco convoy to a solitary shed, always worth covering despite "only" being a light loco turn.

Ledburn, 110615

11061587002r.jpg87002 is now producing on1M11 which fortunately is reasonable light this time of year, even in the gloom of this early morning scene. Long may it continue and let's see the likes of 81002 back on these turns too...

Cowroast, 110615 thanks to Andrew Royle

11061587002arr.jpgCompare the light on this same working 15 miles South of Ledburn with 87002 captured at Cowroast, North of Berkhamsted.

Ledburn, 110615

110615321416r.jpg321411 and 321416 are on the first of 2 up booked 321 turns that follow each other. They are on the 0554 M.Keynes-Euston, the 0619 ex M.Keynes being the other long established 321 turn. This could possibly be the last Summer of 321 operation locally.

Bradwell, 120615 thanks to Andrew Chambers

12061590021r.jpgThe 90's are back on the Sleepers! 90021 with a heavily delayed 1M16 at Bradwell

Lowerstoft, 150615 thanks to "PB"

15061547813r.jpg47813 at Lowerstoft with 2J83 1548 to Norwich. 47818 is tailing. These "vice unit " turns are now operated by top and tail 37's thus ending "regular" class 47 operation on service trains.
