@ddz7504 I saw 1604 on 61601 at Rotterdam Centraal the same day!
Is this heading east towards the border with Russia?
Built by Baldwin in Philadelphia for the EF Morgana in Brazil in 1897 as a 2-6-0 it was brought to the UK in 1990 and acquired by the Brecon Mountain Railway in 2002 and converted into a 2-6-2. Most of what you see is new, only the frames, cylinders, valve gear and some of the running gear is from the original. The boiler, tender, trailing truck, cab and boiler fittings were made in the BMR workshop at Pant.

What's the passenger train?
Sadly this train (6L39) from Bridgend in South Wales to Dagenham, east of London will cease at the end of June. It carries components between two Ford engine plants but the traffic will be much reduced as one of the production lines at Bridgend is closing and it will be more economic to use road transport.

I remember seeing those DMUs on test in the GDR somewhere near Neustadt (Dosse) from a Hamburg to Berlin Zoologisher Garten corridor train in August 1989.
It was touch and go whether the HST on the Cardiff to Taunton local would obscure the 56, but it pulled out just in time. Phew!
