    During my recent trip to Wakefield Model Rail Show, I stopped off at Doncaster both ways to do some rail photography. The weather was bad, heavy rail early but brightened up later.

    Here is a tamper parked between the station and the works.

    Very interesting. The Freightliner coal doesn't seem to have much power. Or, only one engine. It is a diesel as no cantenary?
