Saturday afternoon


Caught crossing the Park at Streetly Gate with a ballast train to Bescot this afternoon is EWS loco 60018.
Practically the only way to see one of these big rumbling type 5's on this line at the weekend is on engineering trains, many of which run quite haphazardly to or from worksites.
However, shortly after this train had passed I wandered away from the railway and missed getting shots of two convoys comprising NINE loco's in total, including two more Class 60s....
