Lorum Rail Operations delivered a superb amount of colour to the dull Winter scenes of late on Wednesday 9th January 2019.
Colas Rail Freight Class 56 No.56113 fronted the 6Z01 05:29 Derby RTC to Okehampton working which conveyed Lorum Rail Grinder DR79231, 32, 33, 36 & DR79237. A pair of Class 20s (No.20142 in London Transport Livery and No.20189 in British Rail Blue) were also provided to complete the final part of the move to Okehampton from Exeter St Davids. The Class 56 was detached at Exeter and did not make the trip up the branch line. The Lorum Rail Grinder will be used for staff training while on the branch.
