Believe it or not, this is programme number 27 in the Traction series and, believe it or not, there were enough unusual workings and fleet developments to make the second half of 2008 as interesting as ever.

Today's rail network may be awash with General Motors power, but there's plenty of traction variety to be enjoyed if you're in the right place at the right time... as this programme proves.
