    The first move from Crewe to Barton Hill will be the steam loco/s as it's timed at 60 mph.
    The second move will be the coaching stock move, timed at 95 mph. <BJ>

    Perhaps a tow for 60009 as mentioned in Post 254 in this thread ?

    A lucky capture of B1 Mayflower pictured passing Tilehurst running 12 mins early, I missed being bowled by about 20 seconds!

    70000 and 46100 at Hereford this lunchtime. Good social distancing being observed onlookers and the majority wearing masks. Station staff friendly and accommodating (as they always are at Hereford in my experience). Behaviour not so good on the road bridge to the south of the station, photographers too close together and blocking the relatively narrow pavement forcing pedestrians to either pass too close or walk in the carriageway. fullsizeoutput_1f8b.jpeg

    70000 and 46100 powering through Nantwich this morning, looking and sounding superb.

    Only half a dozen enthusiasts on the station, and all kept well apart except the one who decided to stand right next to me and strike up a conversation. OK in normal conditions, but not ideal these days. Very apologetic though when I reminded him about the 2m rule, but it beggars belief that anyone needs reminding!
