A few from over the past week:


On 27th September GBRf 66784 'Keighley & Worth Valley Railway 50th Anniversary 1968-2018' approaching Brighouse with 6M59, 14.02 Scunthorpe Roxby Gullet to Collyhurst Street...



...on 28th September GBRf 66760 'David Gordon Harris' rumbles through Brighouse in the rain with 6E50, 13.07 Ashburys SS to Doncaster Down Decoy Yard...



...the Sundays Only 6M51, 12.03 Doncaster Down Decoy Yard to Liverpool Biomass Terminal empty biomass hoppers is often double-headed to move an additional locomotive across the Pennines.  The movement on 3rd October 2021 of three additional locomotives in 6M51 was however unusual.


GBRf 66778 'Cambois Depot 25 Years’ leads sisters 66757 ‘West Somerset Railway’ and 66713 ‘Forest City’, with 60021 ‘PENYGHENT’, heading west along the Calder Valley towards Brighouse with empty biomass hoppers.

That was cancelled according to RTT. I'm pretty sure this was the train:

1120 Llanwern Exchange Sdgs to Margam T.C.


6V05 passed at 14:02 running 39 early it wasn't cancelled assuming we are talking about 13 Oct


66079 was allox 6B27 which was cancelled so worked 6H24 as you say.


I checked 6V05 and then checked the wrong date for allocation, 079 worked 6V05 on 12/10 :blush:
