CREWE/CHESTER 3rd SEPTEMBER 2022
Crewe station and the Duchess enters platform 12 with The Cheshireman running Norwich-Chester.
Looking good in the undergrowth.
Unfortunately it stopped under the bridge.
As everyone disembarked it became impossible to get a decent shot.
Waiting for the train to empty so that it could pull forward onto the triangle to turn. Sometimes just the engine will make the turn but today the whole train undertook the manoeuvre courtesy of a diesel on the rear.
Entering the holding sidings after the turn.
At this point the locomotive was detached and positioned to take on water by way of a road tanker.
Back at Crewe and just in time to see 60055 waiting to leave with a train of what appeared to be ballast?
