40013 at Walsall
D213 worked a Bangor - Bristol charter on Thursday 1st July 2021. The return train was hauled by steam locos 46100 and 45231, with D213 returning light engine and shadowing the charter. It preceded the charter into Bromsgrove, pausing there in case it was needed as a bank engine (it wasn't), It then followed the charter to Castle Bromwich, overtaking it there and preceding it to Crewe, where it was due to relieve the steam locos and work the charter forward to Bangor. The afternoon sunshine disappeared about 30 minutes before the 40 passed Walsall at 19:28.
