Steam through Bredicot 1 July 2021.

Post by TimBrown » 19:39 Thursday 1st July 2021

Quite a good day at Bredicot with the Saphos Charter from Bangor (North Wales) to Bristol Temple Meads with Class 40 D213 'Andania' working the southbound leg and LMS 46100 'Royal Scot' and 45231 'Sherwood Forester' doing the honours from Bristol Temple Meads to Crewe. D213 ran light engine ahead of the charter and acted as emergency banker by laying over at Bromsgrove. In the event the steam duo powered through Bredicot with 46100 'Royal Scot' raising the roof with very loud blast of three-cylinder exhaust after taking water in Spetchley Loop and didn't need a banker with a 4 minute climb of the Lickey Incline.

Fantastic photos. I actually have some action down here worth photographing this week - fortunately as I'm off work I have time to see it.
