5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe is seen getting into her stride just after joining the Sutton Park line at Park Lane Junction. The Castle was working Vintage Trains 'North Wales Explorer' from Tyseley to Llandudno Junction.

The odd-looking sight of 6201 'Princess Elizabeth' running tender-first with support coach in tow on Monday 19th July. The combo ran from Tyseley to Bescot where the coach was remarshalled to the rear and the train departed boiler-first back home to Crewe.
The loco had worked the historic 'The Midlander' charter train the previous Saturday, the first steam-hauled train from Birmingham's New Street station since the mid-1960s.
60011 heads 6E08 from Wolverhampton Steel Terminal across Sutton Park during mid-afternoon on the 28th July. A couple of VTG Carless tanks had been attached to the empty steel train at Bescot before proceeding.
Nice to see yet another blue-liveried loco passing through the area, even if she did look a little shabby after the removal of the 'Mainline' decals !
