Review of 2013

Following on from 2012, I’ve decided to do a review of 2013 with some of the more rare and interesting moves and workings I’ve seen during the year.

 

January 2013

66847 at Holytown66847 at Holytown66847 heads through Holytown with 0Z47 Carlisle Wapping Sidings - Stirling Sidings, Colas Loco Swap (for the Prestwick Tanks) 3.1.13

A livery that is disappearing rapidly is the SPT Carmine and Cream livery, during 2013 a large number of 334’s lost this livery.   On 12th January, here is 334016 passing Hillend Loch with a service for Edinburgh Waverley.

Its very unusual to see a sleeper service at 3pm in the afternoon, yet on 26th January, we had exactly this 90026 passed through with 5S26 London Euston – Polmodie after overhead problems caused it to be stuck at Crewe and cancelled, the ECS was eventually hauled up to Polmodie for servicing
