Update 421. 60015, 47712 & 57009 at Kings Norton, 22/02/11

Travelling to Kings Norton and back is not my favourite journey, as I have to change trains twice on the outward journey and sometimes 3 times on the return journey. Still, that’s better than walking between stations in Birmingham.

It was worth it when I knew there was a chance to see a 60, 47 & 57 in the early afternoon. 60015 was first with 6E41, the empty tanks to Lindsey. It wasn’t too long to wait before 6Z50 appeared with the 2 DRS locos on the return run from Plymouth to Crewe.
