Crewe Cheshire 12th August 2011

It's 22.27 and we have just arrived back in Crewe with the Scarborough Flyer from Scarborough pulled by British Railways 4-6-2 70013 Oliver Cromwell. Crewe station is pretty quiet although there is a small welcoming party at the south end of platform 5. Peter the driver has a few words with one of them. We departed Crewe for Scarborough at 07.27 so it's been a long day - 18.5 hrs since we got up in fact - but we still have to stable the stock, turn the loco and support coach and get back into Crewe Heritage Centre. We turned on the triangle via Gresty Lane, Crewe Sorting Sidings North & Crewe station.
