A FREIGHT LINE TOUR AROUND THE WEST MIDLANDS – FEATURING CLASS 20 POWER!
In response to a number of requests for specific sections of track in the West Midlands that have not been visited recently, we are very pleased to be able to offer this railtour that includes visits to Hams Hall Reception Line and to Donnington Railfreight Terminal in Shropshire. In addition to a number of Goods Loops and requested specific lines, the route also features traversal of the Oxley Chord, the hard climb over Cannock and ascent of the Lickey Incline. Add in an hour’s break at Shrewsbury whilst the carriages are serviced, haulage by Class 20 power throughout (courtesy of loco owner Michael Owen and SLC Rail), and we think that this limited load train will prove very popular.
Top / Tail Class 20s throughout, except awaiting confirmation of the evening Gloucester – Burton-on-Trent 4 x Class 20!
