Were they from today? If so, bugger! I was thinking of going over to Donny for a bit for something to do, but there wasn't much freight booked. If I'd have know about those 4 x 66s, the 47s, Royal Scot etc, I'd have gone!!! :o :cry:
Nice pics BTW! ;)

If you do come to donny to see the convoys, beware that the folk in the powerbox can be a pain in the backside as they nearly always send them the way you least wanted them to go, or you could get bowled by 3 trains like we did when waiting for the Immingham convoy to come:cussing:

Yes :lol: the Thornaby one is usally allright because its allready on mainline, but Immigham one does 9 times out of 10 go on platform 1, but to be honest the convoys now are tending to be sheds and shorter.
