Think here is probably the most appropriate place to mention it, but 66755 (one of the latest batch) will be at the Great Central Railway diesel gala this coming weekend.

Hope this is of interest.

66067 brings the 09:31 Radlett Redland Roadstone to Mountsorrel Sdgs empties through Kettering North Junction on time at 10:48 on Wednesday 27 August 2014. The spire of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, parish church of Kettering, stands guard with the telecoms mast at the former EMEB Kettering Distict depot, now home to Western Power Disribution.

10.00am this morning sees 66737 'Lesia' with 6S45(SO) North Blyth - Fort William Alcan tanks, approaching Newsham where it will run around.

As the loco passed, I noticed the last two numbers - 37, being much larger than 667, very odd indeed!

15 minutes later, having completed the run around move, 66737 heads North.

Hello Folks,

Some photos of 66753 from this Saturday. 

All its workings were double headed with the 66 at the front, I assume this was done as GM never considered fitting Vac braking to them.

The loco certainly proved popular as its services were always packed whilst I was there.

Oh and this was the 80 wheeled beast it rode in on, complete with loading ramp!

Without dispensation yes, but they may (probably will) get permission to tow them all as a single move.

Here's one of those, was it worth it ? shots - but it was the first train of the sugar stone season so I couldn't resist getting up at 06:00 to go out for it (well I could actually but) and I was a bit miffed it was foggy.

66020 rolls gently down from Corby towards Kettering North Junction witth 14:20, 1400 Tonnes, Toton North Yard to Kettering ballast train, 4 minutes late at 16:33 on Saturday 30 August 2014.The train continued on to West Hampstead Thameslink before returning to Kettering, finally arriving at 22:32, 11 minutes late. This working was presumably in connection with track renewals between Kettering and Leicester on the following Sunday while all trains were diverted over the Manton line and a substitute bus service operated between Kettering, Market Harborough and Leicester.

Thought I would throw in an unusual location. I found out the reason there were noMet trains at Harrow on the Hill.
