Update 787. 4 x Class 37s on Bridgwater flask train at Kings Norton, 04/07/13

It was a working not to miss! 4 x Class 37s on a flask train, but which way would it go, up the Lickey or round the Dark Side? It seemed to be running to the times that would suggest it would run via Kidderminster, but nothing can be certain until it is through Abbotswood Junction. If it does not arrive at Worcester soon after passing the junction, then it has gone “the other way”. I was determined to see it & went to Birmingham, ready to catch a train to Kings Norton, but checking to make sure it hadn’t run to Worcester – in which case I would’ve headed back home to see it up the Dark Side. After a no show at Worcester, I was making my way to Kings Norton, not realising there would be a wait of well over an hour. It must’ve been looped somewhere, but there was no information about it. It did eventually appear & was worth the wait.
