66428 damaged in CE possession south of Cumnock

A train worked by 66428 appears to have collided in engineers' possession with that preceding, worked by 66305. The DRS locomotives were reported manned by FLHH crews, both drivers are reported to be OK. Large road crane seems to be required, and line closure anticipated to be for 10 days.

In better days, climbing Shap at Greenholme, 23rd December 2008.

Earlier in 2008 this was a hire-in to Freightliner, and worked trains in and out of Southampton Maritime.
