88007 at Carlisle Kingmoor88007 at Carlisle Kingmoor88007 approaches Carlisle Kingmoor with 4S43 Daventry - Mossend containers 22.7.17  I went to Carlisle for the DRS depot open day in Carlisle.   It was a great day out, even if the weather didn't play ball in the afternoon!   Here are my sightings:

From the bridge outside Kingmoor:

  • 68022 moves into the headshunt at Carlisle Kingmoor
  • 88007 approaches Carlisle Kingmoor with 4S43 Daventry - Mossend containers

Once I had seen 88007 pass, I went into the depot.   There was a good selection of locos on display to see throughout the depot.   There was a lineup of 4 68's in 4 different liveries with 68026 in the plain blue livery, 68001 in Compass livery, 68012 in Chiltern Livery and 68006 in Scotrail livery.   66301 was also named 'Kingmoor TMD' during the afternoon.

Locos seen included:

The heavens opened at around 1.30pm and it was torrential rain! I hung around till the naming ceremony for 66301 and then went into Carlisle Station.
