31128 Ley Court 18 September 2019

It's nice to see a BR blue Class 31 back on the mainline again. 31128 Charybdis passes Ley Court (between Oakle Street and Grange Court) on 18 September 2019 with the 5Z31 09:00 Burton upon Trent Wetmore Sidings to Cardiff Canton Sidings, conveying Anglia Railways liveried Mk2 coach 6042. This coach was being exchanged for two that had been used on the Cardiff to Rhymney trains. Entering traffic on 27 August 1959, this surely makes this sixty year old loco one of the oldest on the national network.
