Colas Rail Class 70 No. 70801
Captured this lurking alongside the Plym Estuary this morning.
Nice one It actually LOOKS like its lurking
Nice picture. A very imposing looking beast. It does look a bit of a stalker.
Thanks for posting.
It was slowly making its was back to Tavistock Junction Yard after refuelling at Laira. Probably only doing about 20 mph. Bye the way, it's not on a gradient. It's camera angle as it was taken from the far side of the Estuary about 300 yds. away.
Different date, different locomotives etc.
These were captured near Laira on the Plym Estuary today. Hope you like them.

Railcare Vacuum Excavator (used for sucking up ballast prior to re-ballasting). In other words a bl!!dy great vacuum cleaner on rails. Here's a vid of it in action:
