92214 "LEICESTER CITY" running through Quorn with a Northbound freight..
Thompson B1, 1264 (BR No. 61264) running as 1251 "Oliver Bury"..
769434, formerly 319434, standing in Quorn yard. The "Flex" unit has been converted from solely electric power to operate on 25kV, 750v DC and diesel power, the latter via a diesel engine fitted to the bogies at each end of the unit.
I sincerely hope they run better than the 319 units, catapulted North, that I use on a frequent basis.
Part of the modifications.
6990 "Witherslack Hall" piloting 92214 running South.

The B1 was moving fast as it closed in on the mail bags.
Now you see it.....now you don't, it was all over in a flash.
There were alternative activities.
