CREWE 5th FEBRUARY 2019
Sandbach station and 319373 waits in platform 3 for Pendolino 390118 to pass through heading North.
66701 followed close behind the 319 unit.
Crewe and 57312 "Solway Princess" brought a new TransPenine unit onto the UDL to pause South of the station.
The unit, apparently 397001, was en route for Longsight.
I've never seen a Polythene-wrapped train before!
47815 "Lost Boys 68-88" was on the rear.
45231 "The Sherwood Forester" appeared in platform 12 ready for its second scheduled run to Chester and back.
The first run was abandoned when, paused in the platform ready to leave, a fault was found, seemingly concerning the ashpan. The locomotive was returned to the depot for rectification.
The name was not carried during the BR era and was applied during preservation.
Time to go with steam aplenty!
The TP unit returned heading for Manchester with 815 leading.
A bonus as 37884 "Cepheus" was waiting in bay platform 8.
My chariot home, put into platform 3 at Sandbach.....
.....waiting for this to pass through.
