Lizzy 2

LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 no 46201 Princess Elizabeth [6201] arrived at Nuneaton 47 minutes late hauling THE CATHEDRALS EXPRESS to Chester from Slough.
After only being 12 minutes down at Fenny Compton she must have had the signals against her and lost a further 35 minutes when she finally appeared just as the last of the rain cleared making it difficult to photograph due to the low winter Sun.
Most enjoyable listening to those with an ardent passion for there hobby while we waited, a Waxwing flying over the northern end of platform 3 towards the Asda car park calling reminded me of my priorities. Not the best of views but there have been a few sightings in the county recently following a large autumn invasion that’s moving south as they devour their food supply including the odd singles in Rugby over the weekend but none nailed down.
Once Lizzy had been watered and pampered (oiled) by hoards of Network Rail and 46201 support staff she made a grand departure.
