I have been inundated with photos in the last couple of days so I am using six of them in today's post, 25th November 2011, There must have been quite a few of you around our patch on Wednesday as no fewer than five people have sent in pics (including repeats) from that day. All the pics featured were taken on 23rd November 2011.
First up are two shots from Alan Rigby. A 'Compass' Railtour ran Hereford - Edinburgh with WCRC class 47s front and rear. They were 47786, Roy Castle OBE, on the front in pic number one, and 47851 on the rear, in pic number two. The location was Winwick.
