With a lull in the mid morning passenger services - judging by the colourful lineup of units in the LINDEVEN DMU Stabling Area - 90024, in GNER colours, makes light work on the UP RELIEF of it's "load 6" of coils destined for Sheffield. Well off it's patch, and on loan to EWS, Fragonset's 73107 SPITFIRE hauls a 6 wagon load of ballast on the DOWN RELIEF, destined for Tyne Yard and a possession next weekend at Hexham on the Tyne Valley line. The authentic looking wagon "loads" are supplied by TEN COMMANDMENTS. Thou really ought to click the link!!
With the main line "action" currently being freight, 66709 JOSEPH ARNOLD DAVIES, still prior to it's official naming (because I haven't got around to it yet!!) rests after refuelling and prior to it's next duty, amongst it's EWS cousins.
In the mid morning lull in passenger services, 6 Sprinters can be sptted resting in the LINDEVEN DMU Stabling Area. First ScotRail's 3 car Turbostar 170413, Central Trains' 158783 and 170515, 158906 in W.Y.P.T.E. Metro livery are in the company of Northern Spirit's 2 car 156490 and 3 car 158811, both with differing company liveries.
