Crewe station's bay platform 7 and 57311 "
" leaves to position itself at the head of platform 11 in preparation for receiving a Holyhead bound Pendolino.
Work to overhaul platform 12 continues with some of the South end roof already gone. A new cover over the footbridge/stairs can now be seen.
An inspection bubble car ran through platform 11 and left on the Chester line.
I saw a class 37 waiting North of the station and it eventually ran through on the up fast with 37605 at the head.........
....on the back end was 37608. The train was a Serco test train which crossed over to park up just South of the station. 7/3/2007
" headed North, light engine.
Pendolino 390039 "
" entered platform 11 from Euston. the train was to meet up with 57311 in preparation for the drag to Holyhead.
A while later, and after some messing with the coupling, the Pendolino left for North Wales.
66624, almost fresh off the boat, left on the Manchester line with two flats in tow.
One Serco train + two class 37's is good enough but two sets in one day - well..... 37607 was at the head as it entered the North Wales line.
Tacked on the back end was 37611 - what a morning for 37's.
