Picture of the Day
With a dark sky but highlighted by the low autumnal sun, GB Railfreight Class 66/7 No. 66764 is pictured heading south along the main Cross Country route near Branston, Burton-on-Trent on the 1 December 2016 powering working 6V09, the 10.51 Tinsley Yard to Coton Hill (Shrewsbury) consisting of a rake of empty high capacity bogie hopper wagons. More recently this working has seen the use of GBRf's sole Class 59/0 No. 59003 Yeoman Highlander but on this occasion the locomotive was at Doncaster Roberts Road and not available. A new housing development is currently being constructed on the field to the left, adjacent to the large deposit of earth that can be seen in the photograph. As a result of this building work the scene at this location will be changed dramatically on its completion. John Tuffs
