Update 858. 5Z82 47580 with 70013 Oliver Cromwell at rear, to SVR 01/11/13

70013 will work the Blue Bell Explorer from Bridgnorth to Sheffield Park on November 2nd. The empty stock was brought up from Southall by 47580 with 70013 running backwards at the rear of the train – probably better for photos than if it had been forward facing at the rear. Better still if it had actually hauled the stock though!

With the aid of my bus pass, I was able to get to see it at Coventry first, then catch up with it at Birmingham International and then finally to Langley Green.
