Thanks Andy…in a few days I reckon I’ll be sick of it haha! I’m sure it'll find its way down to you in due course, there’s a few Southampton to Masborough 'liners through here and of course it could go anywhere if it finds its way onto the engineers trips.

...with some routes around Manchester currently closed due to engineering work until 15th August 2021, the majority of day time Trans Pennine freight that would normally be routed via the Calder Valley line is being sent via Huddersfield.  Consequently on 31st July 2021, 6E26 now passes Deighton with DBC 66013 providing the traction...

One from last night from me, linked form Flickr.

 

Bluey on the boxes

 

DB's Maritime blue 66051 'Maritime Intermodal Four' sits in Westbury Up Yard waiting for a driver to take it and a set of empties to Tytherington as 6C07. The train would go forward to Calvert once loaded.

Some railway junctions are well-known to enthusiasts; I've heard of this location many times but never actually visited. I was passing nearby and, despite the horrid wet weather, stopped to see a couple of trains pass. The spot is Clink Road Junction, on the outskirts of Frome. 

 

Here we see 66617 taking the junction off the West of England line with the 1120 Allington to Whatley.

Two of our drivers from Rugby are currently long term lodging in Acton for some of the Merehead and Whatley jobs, their overtime is going through the roof, not surprising really as they've been down there for over two years ;)

OT, but I thought HMRC only allowed two years, after which the location was deemed your usual place of work and thus expenses etc. couldn't be claimed/or would become taxable....
