57302 "VIRGIL TRACY" parked alongside Pendolino 390008 "Virgin King". 10/11/2007

57312 "THE HOOD" arrived from the South apparently to take the Pendolino to Holyhead. 10/11/2007

Hooked up without problem the 57 was soon on its way West. 10/11/2007

The object of today's visit arrived in platform 11, it was the Bristol-Llandudno charter hauled by 47828 "Joe Strummer" leading 47813 "John Peel" both in Cotswold Rail livery. The train left a few minutes early. 10/11/2007

47828 is no stranger to the coast and was a regular when in its previous guise as "Severn Valley Railway" seen here en route for Holyhead 04/08/2004.

I have no record of 47813 having worked the coast but it certainly has been to Crewe before and is seen here outside the Diesel Depot in FGW livery and carrying the name "S.S.Great Britain".
