The Bank Holiday Panniers

The Bank Holiday Panniers were at Melton Mowbray railway station on Monday 27th of August 2012. This mainline steam train was from Tyseley to Melton Mowbray hauled by GWR class 57XX pannier tank locomotives 7752 (LT94) and 9600.
A 2nd train from Melton Mowbray to Corby was then top and tailed by the Panniers.
The train returned from Melton to Tyseley hauled by the two Panneirs.

This made quite a change from the big steam locomotives on mainline steam. These tanks always sound like they are working hard. The video below was taken on a rather full Melton station, when every one had to get out of the train, when the train was shunted into the loops to clear the line for the normal service trains.

This long train of TDA tanks came along at Melton Mowbray and it was top and tailed by GBRf class 66732 and GBRf class 66702. I had gone to see the steam and this was nice bonus.
