Belgium 11th - 13th November
Another weekend in the Belgian capital covering a Mercia tour, though there were two tours this time. The Friday was a bank holiday (Armistice day) so no P trains to 'Ned' on the Friday evening rush hour. Mercia Charters' two tours over the weekend, were The Mortal Coil on the Saturday with the rather hellfire 5941 and the lawn-mower impersonating 5511. A farce with SNCB meant we missed out on a shunter and a trip to the Oostende Vorhaaven branch. Sunday's tour The Awakening ran as booked with Vossloh 7737 and electric 1205, though a bit later due to engineering works which included some SLW.
