A "new" visitor?

Thursday, 26 July 2012 @ 15:00

The field is still too wet so from the layby this afternoon:

66534 OOCL Express, new arrival 66532 P&O Nedlloyd Atlas, an unidentifiable Network Rail 57/3 (believed to be 57305), Sprite and a Gatwick Express Class 460's DMFLO without branding. - Is this the first time a 460 has visited the Brush?


Network Rail's 57312 arrived from the north to go through the gate into the Brush.

Class 92s

Sunday, 22 July 2012 @09:00

Field now so wet the water is across the road!

Only "Sprite" HC D1341/1966, visible from the layby but a move further round towards the viaduct found a few bits hiding behind the portakabin block.

From right to left: 73209, the cab ends of 2 class 92s ( presumed to be long term residents 92045 and 92046), 56009 and, on the back of a trailer and under tarpaulins, the unmistakable outline of a Eurostar power car (3308).

Pack your wellies!

70001 on Great Central

Slightly off topic but 70001 escaped from the Brush on Tuesday afternoon, was taken on a lorry to Quorn and is currently on the Great Central Railway at Loughborough.
