Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Well as its seem to have been up the North Wales Area a lot this past week, I thought I would start this thread with some photos of the RHTT, I would like it if other have some photos as it past near where you live.

 

The RHTT's are on FEAF Wagons No.642###, the ones up this neck of the woods are Numbered as follows... 001, 003 & 013...!

 

642001 as Two Tanks and One Double Module (RHTT 010 2)

642013 as Three Tanks

642003 as One Tank and Two Modules (RHTT 010 1)

 

Top 'n' Tail Class (37) 97303 & 97304 in Bangor

Top 'n' Tail Class (37) 97302 & 97304 in Holyhead

Seen on different days... hence the numbers differ!

We've had one running with a couple of EWS 66s around our route past couple of weeks. Top marks to the driver for spraying the commuters and making everyone jump. I cracked up watching that... from the safety of my office XD

 

 

Hi Richard

 

Thanks for your comments... Can you get a photo of it as I only have the 97's running up here in North Wales, so would be great to see something of a different livery, mind you, how dirty they get... you could convince anyone its DB Red under all that dirt. 

 

If only my wife... was as Dirty as that... lol

Boring class 66's from me in Cornwall over an incredibly wet Largin viaduct and then at Restormel.

Hi Mate

 

Thanks for the uploads on photos of the RHTTs, the Largin viaduct looks really good, and Single line, where does that go to and from...!?! Interesting. 

 

Would you happen to know what the wagon numbers are... I guess not from the angle of the photo.

Not a clue on wagon numbers and over the viaduct is the only place it's single line I think; it's the main line which had to be singled due to stress over the viaduct. it's doubled again either side i believe
