If the first instalment of 2023 set a high bar for TRACTION programme content, then this forthcoming DVD covering the second half of the year looks to be moving it up another level. So much so, that we will probably struggle to fit it all into the usual 100 minutes. Here’s a small taster on what should be on it….GB Railfreight’s newly converted 69009 & 69010 enter service in green primer; 70801 on the first sand train from Burngullow to Longport; the Class 56 Group’s 56301 working ballast trains for DCR, 37901 on shunting trials at Peak Forest; 37401 & 37425 on the 6K05 Carlisle-Crewe infrastructure trip; 56051 & 56113 deputising for the booked Class 70 on the Lindsey-Kingsbury tanks; five GBRf Class 73s and a rake of intermodal flats on a driver training run around Kent; DCR Class 60s take over the Tytherington-Quainton HS2 ballast trains from DB Cargo; LSL’s 57003 on hire to GB Railfreight for autumn RHTT work; DB Cargo’s Class 60 fleet dwindles to a handful of locos; the end of the Cornish china clay CDA wagons; heritage-liveried power cars 43007 & 43008 mark the end of CrossCountry HST operation; ex-DRS 57009 returns to traffic for WCRC in British Railways two-tone green livery; redundant TPE Class 68s on autumn RHTT and nuclear flask workings for DRS; 90039 becomes the last DB Cargo Class 90 to work a train; 40013 traversing the mothballed Longannet branch; 40145 hauling a Burton to Salisbury Christmas excursion; DB’s recently re-instated and re-painted 92029 working the ‘Garsdale Growler’ BLS charter; 55009 hauling charter trains to Scarborough and Cleethorpes; Laira’s 08644 arriving at Plymouth with the empty stock of the Night Riviera sleepers; the 125 Group’s HST power cars 43089 & 43159 with the ‘Midland Venturer’ charter; 92018 makes a ground-breaking visit to Glasgow Queen Street; the extraordinary sight of 70015, 70001, 66124, 66616 and 66615 on a BLS charter; Freightliner’s 47830 rescuing a failed Trans Pennine Express service; 90012 on the Glossop & Dinting branch on a Freightliner route learning trip; DRS Class 37s on their final autumn ‘leaf busting’ season; 37901 moving two Network Rail ‘stone-blowers’ from Woking to Darlington; HNRC’s 20905 & 20901 hauling five former DATS Mark 3s to Great Yarmouth; 50007, 50049 and 56081 on movements of SWR Class 458 ‘Juniper’ units between Bournemouth and Widnes; 56081 leaving the Hitachi factory at Merchant Park with the first Avanti-livered Class 805 unit; Rail Adventure HST power cars hauling new units for Merseyrail and Tyne & Wear Metro; 20132 towing defective A4 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ from Edinburgh to Crewe; 37884 hauling redundant GWR ‘Flex’ unit 769922 from Long Marston to Kilmarnock; 33029 & 33207 ‘top & tailing’ an inspection saloon around London; 33012 hauling London Underground’s 4TC unit from Alton to Eastleigh Works; double-headed ‘Warships’ on the Severn Valley Railway…and cavalcades of ex-GWR and CrossCountry HST stock to Great Yarmouth as power cars and Mark 3 coaches are exported to Mexico and Nigeria!
