Nice pic of 37884 with it's modified livery....

 

(A large ROG has replaced the Europhoenix branding)

 

Cheers,

Mick

It might be a political thing as the 'EU' was the bit you could read because of the logo colour?

It's linked to the long term hire deal between Europhoenix and ROG.

I wouldn't, far too many spalled Victorian bricks.

 

Old Victorian properties are made from soft bricks called stocks ,which are prone to erosion due to the weather and by being neglected. Seeing the extent of damage already, weather pointing and repair of these properties is very expensive. Even the roof is getting attention right now Probably on the cards for demolition in a few years time.

Nice pics Jim.

 

Did you enjoy your jaunt through the goods loop at Branston yesterday after the farce with 60001 failing on 6M57?

 

At least Colas helped out with the rescue loco - 60002.

Yeah, not a new bit of track for me but I'm sure some spotters loved marking it off in their quail maps!

 

One from tonight so far
