St Denys, 14th January 2017

Mainly the Saturday early afternoon Freightliner cavalcade.

66513 leads 4O14 07:37 HamsHall - Maritime.

70018 passes with 4O27 05:21 Garston - Maritime.

Surprise 66603 leading DIT 70020 on 4O90 05:27 Leeds - Maritime, under darkening skies. The 66/6 is limited to 65 mph, but the train was running more or less to time on a 75mph schedule. 66603 is understood to have been sent to Southampton Maritime for an exam, as Leeds appears to be resource constrained.

66096 with the longest train seen in this area, 4O40 10:44 Morris Cowley - Eastern Docks.

Believed to be one of the last two 'DRS Compass' liveried locomotives running for Freightliner, 66413 passes with 4O29 08:20 Basford Hall - Maritime.
