Having decided not to go out for the first stage of this tour which ran with the loco's Top and Tailed along the north Warwickshire line from Tyseley to Stratford as the weather at the time was so dark and drizzly. On reflection I wish I had made the effort as at least the leading loco would have been the right way round.
the weather was still very dull when I arrived at Danzey station but looked as if it would clear for the return stint. There were quite a few other photographers at the station and word reached on of them that there was a problem with No9600 down at Stratford station..The train eventually departed Stratford 57Mins down with No9466 taking the strain. It then returned to Tyseley where 9600 was taken off and a class 47 dropped on the front to go down to Worcester. A great shame for the steam lovers on the tour but at least they would have 9466 at the front going back up the Lickey on the return journey although it being with diesel assistance.
