I spent a couple of days in Leeds last week. One day was training for the new GSM-R system which the railway is adopting and the second was for a 'LNE Route Conversation Day' at Holbeck Depot - don't ask.
Walking back to the station I saw a couple of stereotypical railway enthusiasts with footsteps looking from the bridge and noticed that this was waiting there! Network Rail Class 97, 97301, is awaiting the road at Holbeck with a track recording train. I didn't have time to wait for its departure though as I needed to get back for my train home. And whilst waiting at the station the previous day, East Coast's 91126 snakes across the west end of Leeds City Station, having brought a down train from London.
