Lovely shots there,those 50's get everywhere now which of course is very good news.

I've also noticed loads of 60's around Newport/Cardiff way lately & still on workings up to shrewsbury/crewe/chester.Miles better than the endless line of sheds!

Waiting in some far corner of the country for a 37
Thanks everyone for the comments, I hope to return to Gatcombe in 2 weeks time for 37s on the shuttles

I don't think many people were after the 37s in the morning as it was a bit of a last minute thing so most people seemed to be after the 50s and the weather was rubbish in Wales I heard...

Ditto to that for anyone who might have decided to take a picture of lesser forms of traction that day,in otherwords anyone who may of taken pictures of 158's.As I went past loads of photters driving 158859 Cardiff to Shrewsbury that morning.

Oh & Jamster I saw 60070 last wednesday (think it was 60070,ex coal sector with EWS sticker over the black diamonds,although cab door coal sector stickers were still there),it passed me at newport,then I passed it on the fast lines to Cardiff,then it passed me again whilst I was at Cardiff central. :)

I was on the one from newport-cardiff around 11am-ish.

Weather was rubbish actually! Windy and the sun f**ked off around 1pm I think!

Good they were after the 50s cos well, they are the better loco in my unbiased view 8)
