The line from Coventry to Rugby was closed due to major engineering work over a couple of week-ends in June and July, this resulted in the trains to Euston and return being diesel hauled between Nuneaton and Wolverhampton. In this the second video I have uploaded, the trains are seen at Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Dudley and Birmingham New Street.
As before the locos used were Virgin 57/3s and a variety of Class 47/8s,including an ex-Virgin one that was on lease to Freightliner but was now back working for Virgin!!
