Steam alongside the Dart

A rare visitor to the loco holding siding at the east end of platform 7 at Bristol Temple Meads. 73951 'Malcolm Brinded' (named after a non executive director of Network Rail) arrived from Derby RTC during the afternoon of 26th. Currently unable to establish the purpose of the visit. 73951 was rebuilt for Network Rail in 2014 and was previously numbered 73104. It can usually be seen out and about on test train duties with sister loco 73952 'Janis Kong'.
Also a couple of views of 'celebrity' 43093, now looking a little the worse for wear.

Second from the left is Bill Cheesman, interlocking engineer based at Par S and T depot. Bill was a Londoner who moved to Cornwall. He looked after the locking frames throughout Cornwall. At the left of the group, next to Bill, is Hedley (whose surname I forget), his assistant.
That's the best I can do!, All the best, Roy
I also noticed that 150221 also has the double arrows, is this the start of the New BR ?
