CREWE 29th AUGUST 2018

 Platform 1 at Crewe and 319362 had arrived from Liverpool.

 The class 68 was ticking over in the bay.

 67023 "Stella" ran onto the UDL, to run round its stock and then leave heading South.

 40013/D213 "Andania" arrived from Chester.

 A Virgin promo apparently?

 1733/47853 was also ticking over, in the Heritage Centre yard.

 1733 in former guise as 47853 "Rail Express" passing through Conwy with
the 09.19 Holyhead-London Euston service on 29th September 2002.
This was the last day of Virgin loco-hauled operations on the North Wales Coast, notwithstanding the Pendolino haulage of course.

 My chariot home.

 CREWE 28th AUGUST 2018

 323234, on a Crewe-Liverpool service, waits in platform 3 at Sandbach to allow a Manchester-bound Pendolino to pass.

 Shortly after the 323 left, 70011 hurried through with a Southampton-Trafford Park freight.

 Crewe and 57309 "Pride of Crewe" waits to leave.

 Twin headlights down the main line revealed a new TransPennine EXPRESS unit.
I missed the DVT(?) ident but was interested to note the bogies with inside frames.

 The train appeared to be occupied by ghosts.

 The traction unit.

 08631 was shunting stock on the Heritage Centre.

 57304 "Pride of Cheshire" waited for work.

 While I waited for my train home, 390045 stopped so I took a shot.

 319366 in platform 1.

 My chariot home.
