I got the 0714 Northern service from Doncaster- Leeds.I arrived into the Yorkshire capital at 0803 giving me a 5 minute conection for the Piccadilly.

I arrived at Manchester at 0905. At 0930 the early start was worth it.......

Looks like you had a great day :) Maybe we should organise a trip to the north west?

Nice shots! I believe the term for the bit involving the 57 is 'bowled over'! Which I'd be too if I didn't realise it was coming out! And I didn't know it worked on Saturdays for ATW!

Loving the shot of 40145 at Manchester though, twas quality! Pity the sun was the other side, would have been a marvellous shot if it had been on your side!
