 390156 "Stockport 170"entering from the North. 18/07/2015

 I shot many Pendolino units but two that carried special vinyls I missed. I just managed to catch this one as it passed through at speed but I have no idea what it was. 18/07/2015

 175108 en route for South wales. 18/07/2015

 Signals were being maintained. 18/07/2015

 The reason for the visit, 45699 "Galatea" entered platform 12 in order to reverse onto the Heritage Centre. 18/07/2015

 It should have been 45690 "Leander" in black but this one was just as welcome. 45699 was running 90 minutes down which meant much hanging around on the platforms. 18/07/2015

 Oh what photographers would give to be allowed to shoot from the maintenance platforms! 18/07/2015

 The engine stopped in the platform and prepared to reverse onto the Heritage Centre. 18/07/2015

 The Super Voyager looked aghast! 18/07/2015

 Having seen this locomotive in Barry scrap yard, I still marvel that it was ever restored to main line use. 18/07/2015

 45699 was being stabled overnight in order to haul The North Wales Coast Express from Liverpool to Holyhead and back the next day. 18/07/2015

 The two class 150's arrived from Chester. 18/07/2015

 Differing liveries with 259 on the right and 255 on the left. 18/07/2015

 350128 was waiting to leave for London, running via Stoke-on-Trent. 18/07/2015

 There are still artifacts from yesteryear on and around Crewe station. 18/07/2015

 On the way home I managed to snatch a shot of 5690 on The Heritage Centre, from the train window. 18/07/2015

 The class 323 interior is quite attractive but the seats are not very well padded! 18/07/2015

 I travelled on 231........
