66718, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, on 6P41, 09:57, Harwich Refinery CRLS SLVS - North Walsham GBRF (12:48) - condensate tanks




How close was I to getting "potted" (shot blocked) by a 90 and coaches ? - a second or two.

This rather pleasant location is only a five minute walk from home.

The 15.08 Wool - Neasden sand train often departs 10 or so minutes early, following the 14.20 Weymouth - Waterloo service to Bournemouth. Before Bournemouth station it waits time for the 15.45 Voyager to depart for Manchester, which it then follows.


Here is this afternoon's train approaching Bournemouth past a Class 444 in the centre sidings waiting to strengthen an up Waterloo service.

66718, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, on 6A33, 14:40, North Walsham GBRF - Harwich Refinery CRLS SLVS (17:53) - loaded condensate tanks



Note quite enough space between the trees to get the whole train in.

With light mist and haze still hanging in the early afternoon, 66007 heads towards Skipton on 22nd September 2014 with 6D72, 11.32 Hull Dairycoates to Rylstone.



A couple of hours later the sun had burnt the mist away when 66025 crosses the bridge over the River Aire with 4D79, 09.53 Redcar to Rylstone.
