I watched them strip down and work on a crashed Tyne and Wear metro set in Bristol days road shed for about a year 2-3 years ago, before chucking it outside under a tarp and then god knows what’s happened to it (all I know it’s been scrapped or just sat dead somewhere else)
There’s been a light loco going back and forth between Bristol Freightliner and Bristol East depot today* - a good 8-10 times. Only thing I can think is driver training for the recent new Stone trains into the freightliner terminal.
*RTT says light loco, can’t be bothered to walk up the road to...
They were either full size silver coal hoppers or shortened ones, couldn’t see through the trees. 100% not an engineering train.
