Diverts at first light, Romsey, Saturday 11th October 2014

66541 approaches in the remains of the mist with 4O11 00:26 from Crewe Basford Hall running 167 minutes late.
The same train, now much closer to the platform.
10 minutes later came 70016 with 4O22 01:41 from Trafford Park, running 23 minutes late.
The Freightliner delays seemed to be the reason for the 24 minutes delay of 6C08 06:09 from Westbury with Turkish assembled 70801. This stopped at Romsey before proceeding towards works on the Chandler's Ford line.
Rail head treatment train duties for DR98977 + DR98927 which ran several cycles between Salisbury and Southampton during the day as 3S82.
