Birmingham Intíl,


In the still of the night the 20ís could be seen and heard as we arrived at the car park. 20301 and 20304 tail the tour


57002 with 47851 (ticking over for therms) make a colourful combo at the departure end of the stock



Dirty weather in the hills as the 20ís power North, With load 12 and a 47/57 in tow there was some rear end assistance up the long drag



The 20ís got much attention on arrival at the border city


ďMore locos than coachesĒ, 66843/66432/47851 await departure for Newcastle with the 37ís tailing out of site



Awaiting the road into Central, 37601 and 608 look good just off King Edward bridge, just prior to returning the tour to Brum
