Update 572. 56302 & 47375 at Kings Norton, 08/03/12

56302 is a loco I had never seen, until today. It was working 6Z23 Burngullow to Burton with 47375 dead in tow. The two locos worked south earlier in the week from Burton, but these sort of workings don’t always run to schedule & by the time I knew it was running there was no time to get to Kings Norton to see it – the joys of using public transport!

Update 571. Train photos around London, 11/01/12

A Chiltern Trains £1 each way ticket offer from Birmingham to London tempted me down for the day. With a travel card for the underground trains I visited Stratford, Ealing Broadway, Willesden Junction & Paddington stations. Makes a change to see different multiple unit trains & liveries down there. Not many freights were seen, but did manage to photograph 67018 & 59206 in the new DB livery. 67012 was on the train back from London, it is nice to travel in a quiet coach with no engine under the floor!

67018 was on the Banbury train, 67012 on the Kidderminster.
