    Flash, it is one of the many General Motors diesel locomotives which dominate our rails these days. They are a sort of SD70, I think. Most of our trains have one locomotive, unless they are older units of lower horsepower, when two can be used.

    I then travelled to Wakefield on a GNER train and visited the model railway exhibition. On returning to Wakefield Westgate station, I had time to photograph a train or two.

    Here is "Pacer" 144 007 arriving

    Immediately I arrived back at Doncaster, a convoy of locomotives arrived, headed by 60 065. This was train 6D01 Thornaby-Doncaster. The other locomotives were 60009, 66001, 66012 and 66070. These locomotives were being readied for week-end engineer's trains.
