Pretty quiet on the steam front till BR Britannia Class 7MT 4-6-2 no 70013 Oliver Cromwell and SR
Light Pacific 4-6-2 no 34067 Tangmere and their support coaches were hauled by
unknown class 66 on Thursday 26th which passed through Cathiron
heading north for Crewe two minutes ahead of schedule.
Oliver Cromwell is
due to return on Monday 29th stopping at Rugby
between 15:49 and 16:17 pm.
Amazingly there were over a 1000 Large White Butterflies flitting about when we walked to the footbridge.
Bob saw Great Western Railway Class 2884 2-8-0 No 3802 on
the Llangollen Railway while holidaying in Wales recently.
