37609 and 37608 at Washwood Heath
On Tuesday 11th September 2012 a pair of DRS 37s were hired by DBS to work the 4C03 Washwood Heath - Carlisle concrete sleepers. This shot was taken at 11:39 and shows 37609 and 37608 trundling towards a red light on the down goods as they approach the RMC sidings. Needless to say I waited for 4C03, which inevitably came by in awful light, sunlit sky and heavily shaded foreground. Demolition of the gas holders, a feature of many railway shots taken around Washwood Heath, commenced in 2015.
