Mmmm Engineers

Another week at work on some varied shifts has produced a number of engineer workings to and from Bescot to the southern end of the WCML.  There wasn’t much variety in the way of the consists, it was MHA, MTA, MFA train after train.  Yeah I know, I am complaining about the consists when I should just be thankful to have the trains coming through my station whilst at work.  I had to miss a few trains as work took priority but as it is I have still been able to upload 141 images of MHAs, let alone MFAs and MTAs.  Some of the images came from a visit to Crewe Basford Hall yard with Freightmaster, thanks to Freightliner running guided tours around the yard for charity.

Typically the above consist was the only one during the week I did not copy down, doh.  MHA 394408 is shown on TOPS with a design code of MH001B, there are only 5 of these wagons to this design code.  These wagons were originally MAA coded but the sides were cut down upon conversion to MHA.

Another train which came through work was 6A15 13:35 WFO Bescot Engineer Sidings to Wembley Yard.  This train had something a little bit different in the consist with some YKA ‘Osprey” wagons.  Pretty standard fair for an engineers train nowadays but through work this week, something different.   Yes I would have liked to have seen some ZCA ‘Sea Urchin’ but I’ll take what I can get.  This was one of those trains which clashed with work so I was only able to photograph some of the train.
