57308 & 47786 at Broadbottom on 10th May 2009

Class 57/3 No. 57308 "TIN TIN" scores some rare track as it passes Broadbottom heading the 5Z85 06:50 Longsight TMD to Glossop empty stock working on 10th May 2009. Operated by West Coast Railways, the 12 coach train was organised to take some 700 supporters of Glossop North End Football Club to Wembley for the final of the FA Vase tournament. Owing to the failure of Class 47/7 No. 47786 "Roy Castle OBE", assistance was required from the Virgin 'Thunderbird' loco from Longsight TMD where the train had been stabled overnight.
