Here are some photos of today's Solihull to Plymouth charter train at Swindon this morning.
The train was t&t by 47593 & 47614 to Bristol T M where 46100 Royal Scot & 45231 Sherwood Forster replaced 47593 for the run to Plymouth.
I would have liked to get a full length shot of the train but as soon as the cumber left a freight train pulled up on the middle road. The two trains actually crossed just out of shot.
