Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Abandoned or Alone

When a railway locomotive travels alone it is referred to as travelling ‘Light Loco’. Light Loco workings happen for a variety of reasons. For example stock in the wrong place after service problems. Going to assist a failed train – You can read of one such instance here. Sometimes it is for maintenance reasons…
90002 runs through Caledonian Road & Barnsbury station Light Loco on a Norwich C.Pt. T.&R.S.M.D to Crewe T.M.D. (E) service. Sometimes these services have some coaches for repair or maybe a multiple unit. But on 14th December, 90002 was all alone. This is a maintenance run though 90002 looks in fine condition, so perhaps she’s been sent collect some repaired coaches from Crewe?

Heading north from Bologna with a load of Flowers bound for Wien, I picked up a flower of my own. Megan has joined us for the ride once more. It’s always nice to have company on the road, even if she is ‘virtual’. I’m almost sure she gave me the evil eye when I suggested that we could crash out at the truck maintenance place, so I felt obliged to go to a proper hotel! 😉
