When I arrived at Carlisle at 02:00, this is the scene that greeted me



Top'n'tail 37s on a sandite train, a an hour or so before departing like a rocket out of the station! About 15 enthusiasts were present at this crazy hour to witness the event.


At 03:07 the delayed southbound Highlands Caledonian Sleeper arrived, this was delayed probably due to an AirCon fault with the ex-Inverness seated Mk2 (Free berths for some then! :lol: )



60067 was stabled in the sidings at Carlisle overnight before working a freight train in the morning.


60053 takes a frieght train from some sidings north of Carlisle to Dalston just south of Carlisle. This loco shuttled back and forth as the whole train was too big for the terminal.


The first southbound Voyager at Carlisle

Thanks to John and Scott for letting me borrow their tripods (they were asleep some of the time :lol: ), I've decided to buy one like John's this week...

Not bad at all! Did you just stay on the platform all night/following morning :?
I was there 02:00 to 10:30, but others had been there for twice as long as that. There were about 10 of us there, but the number varied from time to time. I'd guess about 15 people put in an appearance at some point!

Yeah it was good. It wasn't as boring as you may think either. I got quite a few pics but loads more passed through that I either didn't get photos of or I didn't upload.

Most trains passed through non-stop and it was impossible to get a decent photo in those cases.

I met a lot of people, some I'd met before, some I hadn't, it was good.

Thanks to John for organising it.
