Ken Mumford and Colin Pidgeon
Firstly I caught the Shrewsbury to Weymouth special speeding past Purton (Collins Lane) double headed by D1995 in the original two-tone green [which I like] with 47593 'Gallway Princess' tucked in behind it. Colin Pidgeon took photos when it stopped at platform 1 at Swindon station - left 3 EARLY. [Photos 3 and 4 are Colin's morning photos]
Later and then at Swindon station stopping briefly alongside platform 3 in order to take on an extra man in the cab [pilotman??] and thus to bear right up the Gloucester branch leaving 8 LATE.
I was on platform 3 whilst Colin Pidgeon was on platform 4 and took the last but one photo of 47593 brnging up the rear unpowered.
The other photos were of various trains by me PLUS a class 387 heading to the Cockleberry Sidings.
Kind regards to you all, Ken
