Local Loco convoys. 1991-2016
With the decline of freight and now a number of freight operators competing for what little traffic left the privitised railway has created one bonus.
Loco convoys were rare in BR days as locos needing to travel to other depots would be put on a freight or service train to get home. Today with fewer freights and depots loco convoys are quite a regular sight.
A selection over more recent below, preserved loco convoys will follow.

Old Linslade, 151209
A few minutes before this spectacular convoy passed, a down Pendo hooted at me several times as if to wake me up! Thanks to him as the convoy the Pendo had just overtaken then rounded the corner! Presumably off Sandite duties 37229/66420/66426/57003and 57012 head for Crewe from Stowmarket DRS.
