May the farce be with you. This morning's return 6C70 Barmouth to Crewe Basford Hall - already 65' leaving Barmouth - was four hours late by the time it got to Dovey Junction, after 97303 slipped to a stand somewhere north of Tywyn. A shunt took place there to put 97394 on the front. The pair then had to return to Averystwyth to drag back 37099, the Autoballasters, and 37418. Naturally, they were late arriving, spent all of eight minutes at the seaside resort, and then returned to whence they came sans 37099, Autoballasters, or 37418. Oh, and 303 and 304 are the only operational ERTMS locos with 302 in works.

After belting over to Bow Street, it was then a case of trying to find this return working on a variety of different active paths. I stumbled on it by chance at Ynyslas when the barriers began to drop. A quick scramble up the river embankment and I got this grab shot of the pair. I wonder why I bother sometimes...
