Looks like it's ready to leave Doncaster. Probably a GBRf 66?

Thanks, probably follow the 10.25 Kidder - Whitlocks End train so shouldn't clash with the stopper at Old Hill.

From one of the diesel chaps.

It is running Wednesday and Thursday with hopper wagons for a GBRF and Network Rail demonstration. Trains are operating 09.30 and 13.15 from Kidderminster and 11.35 and 15.20 from Bridgnorth.

The above is taken from the video as it approached Stourbridge. If you want to see a larger version:-

My latest camcorder takes 4K videos and it's easy to copy a frame from the video and turn it into a "photo". Reasonable quality as well.

Filmed it on Thursday at Kidderminster, with 66713 (!!) and finally at Old Hill on Friday as it returned to Doncaster. Playlist with 3 videos (you can skip the first if you've already watched it)
