97302 + 97304 open up with yet another test train passing through Sutton Park. 97304 has a red-backed nameplate 'John Tiley'.
The track recording coach DB 999508 was originally built at Swindon Works in 1960 as an inspection saloon. Converted to a recording unit the coach was then painted into the former Serco red and grey test car livery, before receiving her latest coat of Network Rail yellow paint.

I had gone out to photograph 5Z47 from Tyseley, a train of two coaches for Carnforth with 47786, but missed this move by two or three minutes...

The unusual sight of a Class 57 heading a train of empty stock with two DRS Class 20s bringing up the rear. The ECS was running from Crewe to Gloucester to form an excursion to Penzance the following day.
57601 leads the move with 20309 + 20308 at the back. This train was stopped at Walsall's WL42 signal in Aldridge due to what I think were track circuit problems, the train driver then being given authority to pass this signal at danger and proceed slowly to the next signal at Sutton Park around four miles away.
Evening of Friday 24th June 2011.
