Kirkby Stephen West, 31st July 2023


66122 leading 0K05 12:32 Carlisle - Basford  Hall.

66571 was the load.

The magnificent sight and sound of two Grids on 'The Logs'. 56051 Survival leading 56094 6J37 1252 Carlisle Yard Colas Rail - Chirk Kronospan Colas Rail.

Later in the day, I also noted 56105 + 56113 on 6M37 15:09 Ravenstruther - Carlisle, but was busy behind the wheel.

I determined that the recently overhauled, Colas paint scheme 43277 was going to pass with the NMT, so added an hour for this,

43277 Safety Task Force leading 1Q13 10:38 Darlington - York.

Stalwart 43290 on the rear.
