Update 611. 37608 & 37069 at Old Hill on the Easter Chieftain, 06/04/12

Some more photos I edited a couple of months ago but never uploaded.

I was pleased to see this tour was routed round the “Dark Side”. I get so fed up with trains going via the Lickey as getting across to see them on that route takes 2 or 3 hours out of the day. Also, the sun is shining and the train is not in shade – unusual at Old Hill.

Update 610. 56312 and 56302 on 6Z34 at Kings Norton, 20/04/12

I’ve been looking through recent photos for those which haven’t been uploaded and found these taken at Kings Norton. When I knew two Class 56 locos would be on 6Z34 it was too good an opportunity to miss. The train consists of empty scrap wagons from Cardiff to Shipley. 66148 is also seen on 6O42 loaded car carrier from Halewood to Southampton Docks.

56302 is the loco I had not seen before
