Alnmouth Trains

I had a couple of hours to spare so thought I'd head northwards towards the pretty coastal village of Alnmouth.

Having been somewhat limited in my freight photographs, I was determined to get a shot of the Doncaster West Yard to Shields Yard service (5S20) that was due to pass shortly after 1835 hrs. I was poised ready with my camera when I heard the disappointing news that it had been cancelled.

By way of consolation there were a couple of Virgin Trains East Coast HSTs passing, plus a stopping CrossCountry Super Voyager and finally the twice-daily Northern Rail rattler. 

After that the lure of a cold refreshing was too much, so I headed off to the pub!
