Tracking down 60054, Westbury, Friday 10th February 2017

Friday morning, and decisions to be made - to Hamworthy if 60054 was on the stone train, else to deepest Wiltshire. No clear info for Hamworthy was to be had before leaving home, so off to Wiltshire it was, and noted 60054 on the down side at Westbury in passing.

Returning in the early afternoon found 60054 on the up side, crewed by three, and in use as a supershunter.

13:35 - 60054 on the up side at Westbury.

The drive is ready to move away in the down direction.

13:51 - 60054 was moved to the up side, initially on a short brake adjacent to the DB Cargo office.

At 14:20 the locomotive was moved to the yards, and was involved in shunting of the 7O40 13:35 Merehead - Eastleigh, which arrived behind 59001 with some wagons taken off into the yard. Later (15:56) 70809 arrived on 7C28 13:45 Exeter - Whatley, the Colas locomotive covering a turn for DBC. 70809 came off, the 60 then added some further empties, and proceeded to Whatley.

16:37 - departing for Whatley. 

60054 does not seem to have been out to play much at all this week, the only pictures I can find are at Whatley on Sunday 5th.
