APT-E Move to Shildon  :-  The Final Phase.

During several weekends in October - November the rest of E train was moved from the NRM to Thrall Europas yard

And then taken via low loader to Shildon.

PC1 and PC2 where pin jointed together, a first for E train, and then moved via rail to Thralls yard.

Myself, Kit and Tim took the chance of getting a cab ride for E trains last move.
