  1. 4S47 - DB90's - Bumblebee3 (90020) leading Jack (90036) through Stafford station four minutes early on Friday evening (15th October 2021)
  2. 4S47 - DB90's - Bumblebee3 (90020) leading Jack (90036) on this evening's blue box shipment to Mossend Maritime Euroterminal DB Cargo's current active Class 90 pairing of 90020 and 90036 heading through Stafford station on this (14th) cold mid-October evening. 90020, nicknamed "Bumblebee3", the third of three former Grand central liveried Class 90s; 90026 and 90029, 026 the first and 029 the second. The plan was for five DB90s to operate the Grand Central service from Blackpool north to London Euston. This service was abandoned following the emergence of the global pandemic, Covid-19. 90036, nicknamed "Jack", was the first DB Schenker liveried class 90 and was named "Driver Jack Mills" at Crewe station and the naming ceremony was recorded by fellow Youtuber Sim0nTrains. Jack was later de-Schenkered as DB Schenker was changed to DB Cargo. 90029 and 90040 which were also liveried into DBS were also de-Schenkered. Bumblebee3 and Jack have just relieved DB's most hard working Skoda pair Bumblebee1 (90026) and Multimodal (90019). This pairing had just picked up the Malcolm Rail service at Daventry, with the previous pair Multimodal (90019) and Bumblebee1 (90026) having headed home from Mossend along with Christine (90037) light engine.
  3. 4M25 - DB90's - Multimodal leading Bumblebee1 through Stafford station on the upfast - 90019 & 90026
  4. 0Z69 - DB90's - Team Red Skoda 90035 brought back to Crewe IEMD, from Rectory Junction - BIG thank you Shaun @ Mini Wistaston Junction on Youtube
  5. 4S47 - DB90's - Bumblebee1 (90026) leading Multimodal (90019) out of Stafford station
  6. 4S47 - DB90's - Bumblebee1 leading Multimodal into the UDL @Stafford station - it had 2 be today :-) In what can only be described as an unusual occurence, but maybe one which was set in the stars, or would appear to have been set in the stars, a nice pleasant evening in Stafford, in early October, the DB Cargo Class 90s, Bumblebee1 (90026) and Multimodal (90019) operating on 4S47 dragged into the UDL at P7 to allow for being clear of 1Z81 heading along the upslow approaching Stafford from the north, WCRC 57s on a railtour - the DB90s came in for a rare opportunity to be captured by me. It has been an unusual day but a truly brilliant one all along, and makes up for missing Malcolm and Backbone on 0K06 last night. I have never been so grateful to see a Class 57 before as I have tonight. Whilst its unusual to see 4S47 held here, its not unusual to see a DB90 or even a 90 here, some examples of this class being seen here previously are: Christine (90037), Bumblebee1 (90026) and 2 (90029) (arriving to get out of the way of 4S47) Christine, Bumblebee1 and 2 (allowing Jack (90036) and Multimodal (90019), on 4S47, to get out of the way) Freightliner's newly reliveried Class 90, 90003 on its way back to Crewe Basford Hall from Wolverton paintshop
  7. Must have gotten lost or been part of a convoy ... Skywalker, L, Ep4
  8. interesting that DB have been quoted as saying they arent going to change theirs, amusingly, when in sad reality, how many UK wide electric-hauled freight services do they deliver ? two a day ? as opposed to Freightliners eight, ten or it might even be more Kat :-(

  11. Whilst I am not planning to buy a Heljan Class 86 for the foreseeable future, I am really impressed with the latest release from a visual point of view. My only real observation is that it's maybe a bit of a shame that the panto isnt servo operated like the Bachmann 90 and the Accurascales 92, yet still the same price virtually.
  12. DB Cargo Class 90035 returning to Crewe from Rectory Junction, having finished its sabatical on the DATS Midland Mainline Electrification testing project, seen here Barthomew Junction, with DB pool mates Class 67005 and 67025.
  13. 4S47 getting on its way to Mossend Maritime Euroterminal 7th October 2021 Malcolm Rail service - from Daventry DIRFT to Mossend - comprising of DB Cargo Class 90 duo of 90026 and 90019 or as I call them, Bumblebee1 and Multimodal

It has been an unusual day but a truly brilliant one all along, and makes up for missing Malcolm and Backbone on 0K06 last night.

  15. Thank you @AY Mod - It's a great day for me, to have this done, 90035 is back at Crewe IEMD and my beloved football team Newcastle United being taken over ..
