Update 536. 47828 & 47802 at Coventry, 50049 & D1062 at Cradley Heath, 21/10/11

It seems a long time since I added any photos to my other site, maybe now that winter is approaching & there are less jobs to be done in the garden I might make some progress on a backlog of updates.

The Boat Train from Glasgow runs via Coventry & Leamington, my pass will get me to Coventry for free – so that is where I went!! After seeing that train it was straight back to Cradley Heath to wait for the Class 50 & 52 returning to Kidderminster & the Severn Valley Railway, the “Western” diesel having had its tyres turned at Tyseley.

An unusual angle for this shot. Also worth mentioning that this was the first service train for 47828 under DRS ownership & looking very smart in the blue livery.
