Update 591. 47375, D821, 55019, D8188 & D8059 depart Kidderminster for Swanage, 10/05/12

Unfortunately nothing went to plan for the loco move to Swanage. D6515 had problems on the way from Swanage to Barrow Hill to collect 55019 and was replaced by 47375. After a late arrival the previous day, the convoy departed on time with the 3 SVR diesels attached for the journey to Swanage. Everything seemed fine, but the 47 failed later in the morning and the convoy had to be returned to Kidderminster – those photos will follow later.
