Loco Used 34079

Route :

Loco(s) Route
34079 Bristol Temple Meads - Gloucester Eastgate - Bromsgrove - Birmingham New Street - Lichfield City - Burton-on-Trent - Derby
34079 Derby - Uttoxeter - Stoke-on-Trent - Crewe
34079 Crewe - Rugeley - Walsall - Wednesbury - (via Princes End branch) - Tipton - Gloucester Eastgate - Bristol Temple Meads

Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required. Believed 34079 worked throughout (seen at Bristol, Lickey & Crewe) but confirmation required. On the return leg it was seen passing Monument Lane, Birmingham, heading south. Richard Glover also confirms: 34079 certainly pulled us out of Birmingham on the outward journey. We toured Derby Works, Crewe Works and Crewe North Shed, but I don't have any note about visiting Crewe South shed
