Win Some, Lose Some

Having shot the Network Rail TRT in sun at Upper Denton on Tuesday morning I waited for the imminent arrival of the 6E44 Kingmoor - Hartlepool flask train; and waited....and waited.

Gen' over the ether had Class 57s Nos.57004 & 57003 allocated for the train on TOPS, no surprise as they had worked up from Sellafield on Monday night's 6C46.

The train finally trundled into view over an hour down, long after the clouds had rolled in.

Although No.57003 was present, a problem had evidently occurred with No.4 as No.57008 had been substituted and led the consist.

Here they are in the gloom, complete with a nice tree for Semwez!
