Diverted freightliner


4M87 was diverted over the Sutton Park line late this afternoon, running to Crewe behind named FLHH loco 66503 "The Railway Magazine".
Normally the service would be electrically-hauled via Bescot to Crewe while work on the Trent Valley lines continues.
There are one or two old posts of this train at Newton Road on that particular blogsite...

Too right.... or a 40 as on the Lawley St - Holyheads of years gone by... the empty space behind the loco meant that I could get a whole container in the shot as well (wow) !
