CREWE JULY 10th 2021
Sandbach and 319368 arrives on time running Liverpool-Crewe.
Crewe and 34046 "Braunton" drifted along the UDL in preparation for its run to Carlisle.
Paused at the signal.
The Carlisle train arrived from Rugby behind 90002 "Wolf of Badenoch".
323236 arrived from Manchester.
The class 90 departed the scene and West Country pacific drew forward onto the Chester line.
90002 reappeared and ran through the UDL.
34046 then reversed onto its train.
08.30hrs and time to leave with, once again, the drain cocks wide open.
Impressive but no chance of a shot of it leaving, very disappointing and was it really necessary? I have no idea.
On the tail was D1935.
My chariot home.
SANDBACH JULY 4th 2021
The Branch Line Society's "The Summer Syphon" passing through Sandbach en route for York.
37423 was in charge with 37422 on the rear.
The roar from 423 was incredible, not only could you hear it, you could feel it.
It was truly exhilarating and made more so by the horns being sounded as the train passed - thanks driver.
37422 "Victorious" complete with the "sparrah".
