D train 230009 Shrub Hill 28 Nov. 2020

Post by TimBrown » 12:05 Saturday 28th November 2020

Some pictures of 'new' D train 230009 (reworked London Underground stock for Wrexham to Bidston line) making a test run from Long Marston to Stourbridge on Saturday morning 28 November 2020. These workings normally run through the yard to the East of Shrub Hill station, but today the train ran into platform 1 and stood for nearly 15 minutes waiting a path North, giving me a chance to take a few close-up shots. The weather was wet with mist and very low light levels so some photos are somewhat fuzzy - that's my excuse anyway!
