|Allerton shunter New
|From another group, a yellow shunter as been noted at Allerton dragging units, anyone have details on this shunter please?
I have since found some info at the Preserved Database web site, its Battery electric tug unit type RW30/50AEM, a picture of one here http://www.railwayscene.co.uk/fetchimage.php?imgref=7355
Not my picture
|Loco on move
|John Antell was on the road today with a blue 08, heading south on the M42 passing the NEC at about 10.40 this morning. No number visible on one side, but when I slowed down and let him overtake me it seemed to have 08 885 (not 100%) on the other.
|Swanage Gala 2012
|Not 2012...but 2013
D3591 was giving brake van rides at Norden today...didn't get there for 8.30am to get a phot of it doing the Swanage-Norden
Also didn't venture as far as Swanage so no sighting of 08436.
Here's a couple of it at Norden where a member of staff kindly walked me up to get a phot
|Forthcoming Diesel Galas
|Not involving any visiting shunters this time, but the Great Central Railway are hosting a diesel gala in a few weeks time....

|Bit of an ID request guys. I'm absolutely useless as identifying the industrial type of shunter, so any clues on what this may be please....
|I passed Longsight today at about 11.00 and saw 3 shunters parked in front of the depot, one was definitely 08454 can you tell me what the others were please.
Also there was one at the small depot just south of Stoke (Rail Engineering Services ??) it was in a very faded EWS livery.

|Friend's party in Pontefract afforded me a quick trip to Knottingley, for the first time in years (the building on the embankment was being built last time I visited).
Gate shut so no entry down to depot, but 09201 was parked at the head of a rake of wagons by the wagon shed door nearest the road bridge - would have made a nice photo, but had left my camera at home.
66082 also visible over shed roofs at far end.
