Footex

Last weekend saw  the West Coast have a number of special trains run over it.  People were moving between London and the Liverpool area for two sporting events, one being the Grand National at Aintree and the other being the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley between Liverpool and Everton.  Work in the morning was booked to be a mad place between 08:30 and 10:30 with charters stopping, passing and even a kettle watering  so I decided sleep was the better option and figured I would get some of the traffic on the return.  Due to having to do some actual work I missed two trains, one being the kettle and the other being the railtour “The Olive Branch II”.

First gallery updated is the class 47 gallery with a number of shots over the last couple of months.
