31190 at Bescot
Friday 31st May 2013 provided a 6Z31 Weymouth - Bescot special, comprised of 31190 and the RailVac machine. This was due Bescot at 16:28, but was photographed between Pleck Jct and Bescot at 16:45, after apparently being caught in congestion around Walsall. I'd hoped it would appear about 30 minutes earlier, with more light on the nose, after it had passed Park Lane Jct at 15:28. This loco dates from May 1960, so was 53 years old when this shot was taken. I wonder when Bescot last received a train from Weymouth.
