September Sightings
It's a bit difficult to be specific as we went up north to get Northern units so saw a few shunters when covering the Midlands/Leeds/Manchester/Liverpool/Crewe areas from the 14th-17th photos of a few and they are on our Flickr just past the photos of the ten 20's at Derby on the 14th September.

Didn't see any pilots at Edge Hill or Allerton passing....but got the one at Speke...and two trains past Neville Hilll and a walk in the park only resulted in one positive id and that ...
Hi all,

From onboard a slow(ish) moving Pendolino yesterday (28th), I noted two shunters on DIRFT.  08823 was on the container loading pad nearest the line, whilst the other was over the back nearest the warehouses.  I thought it was plain yellow (a la 08202/598) though I suppose it could've been Malcolm liveried (08445?)

Any ideas?

On 23 September Danny Boy was working whilst the other Zephir appeared to be having attention. Confusingly both Zephir's have the same fleet number Lok 16 300 but only one is named.

Roy-Don-Clive TH 290v was spare.

Followed Bob's excellent directions and crossed the field diagonally on a well worn path. Upon reaching the field boundary near the MML there was no evidence of any signage but numerous paths some of which is parallel to the MML. Eventually I reached a locked gate and fence oppo ...

08648 now 08624

As posted on wnxx, 08648 has been repainted black with Grand Central Brandings, presumably heading for Heaton?
The loco also carries the incorrect? number 08624.
From the same source (as wnxx), 08624 was under the yellow/ black paint when stripped off - could there have been an identity swap somewhere???

West/East Mids fri/sat
Hi All

Had a 2 day pass from the mrs so had a jolly out in the car on Friday and Saturday 12/13-09-14

First port of call was Kidderminster. Only viewed the shed off the footbridge behind the footy ground. Not much to report as all bar 2 gronks had been removed from the turntable area for trackwork. One was green with red rods and was sat on the turntable and the other was green and had its rad end tarped over (also had red rods). Only other loco visible was 20059 outside the shed. Alongsid ...
Derby Litchurch Lane 21/5/14
Saw a very smart maroon 08 899 at the open day today and could see 08 631 in Network South East livery, blue 003 and BR green D3871 and a what looked like East Midland trains 08 behind them at Litchurch Lane.
South Wales Shunters.
I am planning a trip to South Wales soon to see 08641 at Landore and 08787 at Machen.
Could anyone please confirm that 787 is still at Machen and how easy is it to photograph? I would follow the directions on this forum.
Also, does anyone know how long 641 will be at Landore before they cart it back to Laira (or somewhere else)?
These are two of my last three for sighting. (The other is 615 at Craigentinny)
Thanks, Tony.
