Class 57 and 20s

The unusual sight of a Class 57 heading a train of empty stock with two DRS Class 20s bringing up the rear. The ECS was running from Crewe to Gloucester to form an excursion to Penzance the following day.

57601 leads the move with 20309 + 20308 at the back. This train was stopped at Walsall's WL42 signal in Aldridge due to what I think were track circuit problems, the train driver then being given authority to pass this signal at danger and proceed slowly to the next signal at Sutton Park around four miles away.

Evening of Friday 24th June 2011.
