D1944 at Bescot
D1944 (47501) arrives at Bescot with a 5Z71 Crewe - Bescot training move. The photo was taken at 11:58 on Wednesday 7th February 2018. On the previous two days this train had run via Chester and Shrewsbury, before returning to Crewe via Stafford. On both occasions it had been top-and-tailed into Bescot before lead loco 47501 ran-round and returned north with 47805 inside. However on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th the train did the reverse circuit, running south via Stafford before returning via Shrewsbury and Chester. On both of these days 47501 worked solo.
