Freightliner workings at Eastleigh, 29th November 2019

66414 in the Powerhaul scheme, departs with 4O15 07:19 Birch Coppice - Maritime.

70002 followed later with 4O14 05:36 Garston - Maritime.

66515 + 66551 4M61 arriving with 13:00 Maritime - Trafford Park.

Recently reinstated 70011 approaches with 4O90 06:08 Leeds - Maritime. This appears to have been its first working following repair attention since reinstatement.

The bogies of 70011 were clean, showing evidence of recent wheelsets maintenance, a known issue with the stored members of the class. The loco is also understood to have received a new engine. One panel in the upper middle appears to have come from a more faded member of the class.
