47853/D1733 was in charge
of today's 9.19 Holyhead-London. The locomotive detached from
the train at Crewe to hand over to 87010 "King Arthur"
and then ran round to head North for Preston. It sat for a few
minutes at the North end of the platform 12 loop to await the
green aspect, just time for a few decent shots. 4/12/2001
