Wellington Bay Platform 3 and Trailing Crossover

#298 Posted on: 02 June 2019 at 16:32 by Paul StewartType: Public

Next Sunday is Cosford Air Show and there are three extra public services (Air Show ticket or attendance not compulsory!) advertised that start at Cosford at 14.46, 16.12 & 17.20 calling at Telford Central then run to Wellington bay Platform 3 - normal tickets valid.

However there are no trains from Wellington P3, they are all ECS
(it's same unit going backwards and forwards).

The Air Show is very busy - (with long jams on the roads) - and unless anyone is interested in going it would be better to join these trains at Telford Central.

Anyone on the two fully booked Wellington - Ironbridge trips could fit this move in before or afterwards.

These steam trains should go from Wellington P2 (confirmation awaited), which is bidirectional and use the trailing crossover on departure.

UPDATE: The first train from Wellington to Ironbridge turns on the Shrewsbury triangle (as an ECS move) beforehand so that the steam loco leads. It then departs for Ironbridge from Wellington P1 (not P2), but the second is booked to leave from P2 so will do the trailing crossover on departure.
