    Confirmed on Facebook - 45231 'The Sherwood Forester' and 46100 'Royal Scot' from Crewe to Bristol.

    Interesting what runs they have in store for the Black Five down south, but it should be a lot of fun.:D

    At least the diesel will keep quiet given the added horsepower upfront !

    Do double headed trains require traction inspectors on both locomotives?

    Not great state of trackside on Llanvihangel Bank. Got this in a gap in the trees and bushes; and between spells of sunshine needless to say. Double Header in the countryside. 45231 and 46100 Llanvihangel Bank 3rd June 2021.jpg Sounded good but not much smoke.

    I had hoped Shropshire would continue the sunny conditions of the last few days this morning but after yesterday evening's showers the cloud showed no sign of clearing.
    The nice pairing of 45231 leading 46100 seen just south of Whitchurch and passing the old loading screens at Sharpstones quarry.
