|40145 climbs the Lickey Incline, approaching Vigo Bridge|
About an hour later there was a 47 top and tailed tour also heading for Hollyhead (Well sadly it had a kettle attached at Crewe)
Many thanks to Jason Cross for pointing out the new location.
|Struggling up the grade 47851 passes Pike Pool Lane on its way up the Lickey.
The train took a full 45 seconds to cover it's own length. The driver was looking very perplexed and just shrugging his shoulders at the assembled fotters!
|Doing nothing to help the ailing 851 47826 sits on the rear of the train.
This shot was taken almost 3 minutes after the train came into view.
