QUOTE (Paxman @ 5 Apr 2007, 15:27) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Driving near Bristol, UK about 7 a.m. this morning I passed under a rail bridge as a freight train went by. It was hauled by 67 019 and tailed by 67 025, and looked to be made up of very dirty brown VGA vans.

Does any enthusiast know what freight flow this was, by any chance?

(I like to model what I see locally, a.k.a. any excuse to buy more rolling stock...)

67019 and 67025

QUOTE (Paxman @ 11 Apr 2007, 18:25) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>And is that the full headcode in the middle there, in which case, can you interpret it for me?

810V53CD06

Current train is xV53
Next train is not allocated as yet, hence the C, but it will be D06
Train is load 8
It used to be easy to read these, but as more codes get added it gets more difficult

Take this one, as an example :
67007 WABK TEES YARD 156S92C920 MOSSND DY N 1H03
Loco is currently at Tees Yard completed 1H03, heading to Mossend on xS92, where the train will form and haul load 15

This was a Class 67 load test
However, it didn't go as planned
Initially both 67s were paired up and hauling
67019 and VGA van wouldn't separate, so it was shut down
The other 67025 ran round and dragged the train back to Avonmouth
The coupling from 67019 was then freed by cutting the coupling on the VGA van

67019 was subsequently damaged, and is now at Ripple Lane for repair
