Whizzo on the main line
Author: 55002

Saturday was a super day here in the UK, when 'Western' class 52 D1015 'Western Champion' stretched her legs on the main line. The event was a charter from Swindon to Scarborough, with the Western taking over at Kidderminster. She's seen her approaching Broomfleet station on the line to Hull. chris uk.

That's one heck of an excursion both in area covered and the size of the train. Excellent picture both in how it turned out and the semaphores in the picture.

Thanks. The tour was a success, but regretably it is reported one of the engines will need removal for inspection / repairs. chris uk

Nice to see a historic, twin-engined (Maybach) diesel-hydraulic out on the mainline.
