29.9.13 - 56087 6C37 Chirk - Carlisle, Salterwath - West Coast Main Line
For the past two weekends the Sunday empty log working from Chirk to Carlisle Yard had made good time on its way north and has worked up Shap around 1 hour earlier than its booked path. This would mean getting a shot with sun on the cab front (if there was any sun) would've been very difficult. However, today under cold but very clear Autumn conditions a different situation unfolded. Running just 30-40 mins ahead of time through north Lancs the working didn't have enough headway in front of a couple of following Virgin services. So was held further south awaiting it's booked path. Seen running just behind time, Colas 56087 hammers through Salterwath on the 1:75 climb to Shap summit with the attractive 6C37 diagram, a powerful shot to say the least.
