There were a few test trains out and the only local place to see them all was Water Orton, so that had to be the place to go – even though it is outside the area covered by my pass & I had to fork out some money! The bonus was seeing Colas 56094, looking very smart in the bright livery. One test train from the south west did not appear, but 97302 was a pleasant surprise. The other freight trains seen during the time I was there are also included.
My first sighting of 56094
