A rather busy day around Yorkshire today for what has to be one of the busiest days so far this year. Ta to FrostedOrange for the company and a certain someone for the lifts! :)

Managed three of those (scrap, Duchess, cruise train) plus the Network Rail banana in Rotherham, all within a single hour. And I thought that was a busy day!

Yeh, this particular trip involved some very careful planning, especially to get a different location for every one! Not something I would normally do but felt making the most of what was running was the right thing to do :D
