Rail Live 2014 - Large Plant moves

It looks like there are several moves planned next week to get machines to the show at Long Marston. They may not be as big as last year's "mega train" and one of the Rugby moves may possibly be some locos...

Monday 16th

- 0810 Rugby depot - Long Marston

- 0854 Derby RTC - Long Marston

Tuesday 17th

- 1023 - Rugby depot - Long Marston

- 1130 - Trent Sidings - Long Marston

There may be more to add to this list over the coming days, so it will be worth keeping an eye on the Long Marston schedules (16th / 17th).

The two big plant moves are from Bescot, the first ex Bescot 16/6 0910, arr Long Marston 12:17, second one ex bescot 17/6/14 0429 arr 0807. The consist of each hasn't yet been decided but the plant being moved is:

BBRail Kirow 810

BBRail Single Line Gantries

BBRail NTC

BBRail Wiring Train

BBRail Steel Tramm

Colas TRM 78226

Colas TRM 78235

Colas Kirow

Babcock Kirow

Babcock TRM

Other plant will be going to the show self propelled.

DR98012, DR98013 and DR98014 with 97305 and 97310 have moved there last week, as did a rake of ballast wagons.

Looks like the move from Derby will include "Mentor", a PLPR coach and maybe some others.

60087 will be there, and 73118/77905.

Today's arrivals have been:

Scheduled arrival at LM 1009

Thanks all for the notes so far.

The move from Washwood Heath today should involve locos 37219 & 60087.

A new move has cropped up starting in Banbury - DR73911 perhaps?

It was DR73911. DR73118 and DR77905 have also made their way down. DR80302 is also on its way. There is a path in from Kings Norton, but as of yet, nothing has moved in it

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, Monday's Derby RTC - Long Marston move consisted of 37608, 975091 and 1256.

Something has also gone in from Worcester Shrub Hill this morning, but not DR73115, which is still in the area.

Something went from Kings Norton in the end - assuming an MPV, apologies for not being able to provide specific details on this or the above move. Colas locos have now also arrived though.

The Kings Norton move was DR73108.

We'll be at the show tomorrow - send us email or Tweet if you want to say hello!

Awaiting your list :) Im there tomorrow

The two trains from LM to bescot tomorrow are formed as follows. Sorry, didn't have time to put the descriptions in, just numbers.
