Dear all,

I am up visiting family and looking to take a few photos around Northallerton station and things have changed a bit since i used to live here!

I wonder if anyone can advise me when the best time to pop out would be? I have scoped out a few new sites for pictures which were not available previously because of demolition and want to give them a try.

I wonder of there are any freight services over the next few days ( does bank holidays/easter affect freight terminals?) There used to be a 60 hauled jarrow tanker train. Does that still run as i assume everything else will be 66 hauled

I appreciate i have just asked the type of question is usually berate people for but i am not in my normal location so it is OK LOL ( i have my own "Hand drawn" version of freightmaster for my home location :) )

thanks and sorry!

The 60 on 6D43 (Jarrow Tanks) still runs. I don't know the exact time at Northallerton but at York it is around 18:30. Most things are still 66 hauled but a DRS working has recently started which runs twice during the day.

I was going to ask a question about bank holidays aswell. I am planning to go to Carlisle next Wednesday but hopefully everything should be back to normal by then.

Might be worth getting in touch with the Wensleydale Railway and finding out whether there are any forthcoming movements onto the branch?

On a train...somewhere!
6D43, the return tanks, generally runs through at 1732hrs, but this is different on certain days, especially at weekends.

You will get a rush of freight from around 1630-1830 on a weekday. Otherwise, mornings are generally best.

Where were you thinking of for photographs? :)

Legzr1 could you expand on your post please?
I was being flippant - I'm not sure if getting up at 04:30 would interest you :D

N03 are loaded tanks (D43 being the empties returning to Lindsay).

It's very rare for it to be running on booked time - either massively early or massively late (although all this right-time-running has had an effect) - there were times in the not to distant past where it could arrive at Tyne Yard at 0430!

If it's running with the full load (30 X 100T tanks) there's a good chance it will have a Cl 60 - if less than that there's a good chance it will have a Cl 66 - you can thank the excellent 'reliability' of the Cl 60 for that :D

The avoiding lines at N/ton are good for steel traffic to/from Teeside-Scunthorpe and Rotherham/Wales.

V66 is running on Sat (should be there around 11:20 - noon) Redcar-Wales,31 HTA's filled with coke for the blast furnaces.
Not as long or heavy as the real 'jumbo's' that used to run from Carlisle - York a few years ago (42 HTA's,2X Cl 66 in multi arounf 4,000T) but still impressive when snaking through Boroughbridge - Longlands (if you're into that sort of thing).

I'd be impressed to see ANY kind of train at Boroughbridge! :lol:

Nice to see it here though http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinzac55/3389921209/
