A Network Rail Measurement Train heads into Crewe with 43013 leading 43014 as 323237 enters from the Manchester line. 24/03/2010

The main reason for visiting Crewe was to witness Stanier Pacific 6201 "Princess Elizabeth" leaving the Heritage Centre and head for Southall in preparation for a Steam Dreams "Cathedrals Express" charter from London to Bristol and return. 6201 was deputising for the failed 34067.    24/03/2010
