The first weekday of 2017 was one of wall to wall sunshine, but only one locomotive working passed through Bredicot during daylight, and this consisted of a convoy of three clean Colas livery locomotives, Class 70s Nos.70801 and 70802 and class 66 No.66846 on their way from Bescot to Westbury.  Photographed by Steve Widdowson.
Tuesday 28th February 2017 saw a rare running of the Crewe to Berkeley nuclear waste train.  Robert Pritchard photographed the return working at Norton.  The load consisted of one wagon with class 57 diesel locomotives Nos.57305 and 57301.
Steve Widdowson photographed (above) two unusual workings at Worcester Shrub Hill on 19th April 2017.  Network Rail's "Class 150" two-car diesel multiple unit Nos.999600 and 999601 was working the 10.36 from Derby to Bristol (left) whilst class 37 diesel locomotive No.37409 with carriage No.975025 worked the 08.02 from Ealing Broadway to Crewe (right).
