The Forgotten 'Spoon'
Situated just north of Melton Mowbray in the Asfordby Valley is the hub of the Old Dalby test track. This backwater of a railway line actually boasts a massive variety of Traction with 345 387 701 710 and 720s all being tested out of here this year.
The vehicles on site are shunted around by 2 Class 08s and this Class 47. Although I havn't seen the 47 working this year it has definitely been used recently. The loco is seen stabled at the east end of the complex on 24th August 2020 with barrier vehicle ZCA 'Sea Urchin' 210111
