    This is just a marker for where hopefully the first signs of the test run of Bahamas will appear in due course. Something to look forward to in 2019.

    The yard at Wansford will look oddly empty after the 15th - and sadly I'm working that day so I can't wave it off through Fletton :(

    Bahamas is schedueled for initial tests including a run to Stratford-Upon-Avon on Tuesday 15th along with a loaded test run on Thursday 17th.

    My understanding is it's for crew training. Interesting load of 4 Mk 1s including the generator and a Class 47.

    Walcot between Shrewsbury and Telford -- a lot less sun than promised by the Met Office but the strong northerly wind would have the last word anyway - a difficult day for photographing this stretch.
    Sounded superb at Cosford even with the light load.
