Workings at Romsey, 6th April 2021 (part 2)

Three in a row, one through late working, the second being halted by a red signal at Romsey, and the third managing to wait in a slow crawl for the green after the second passed the next signal at Dunbridge.

Heavy metal on 6V41 14:48 Eastleigh - Westbury, with 66719 METRO-LAND leading dead-in-tow 66850 David Maidment OBE + 66054. This train ran via Redbridge.

The morning arrival to Southampton Up Yard was 2 hours late, and consequently the return working was 90 mins late, and was held to await the Romsey trains on the Chandler's Ford section. It then had to stop in Romsey to wait for 6V41 to pass Dunbridge.

VTG 3229 was one of two KEA wagons in the consist, the other being 3202.

The third train was the return of the Chi-stone, 7V09 13:41 Chichester - Merehead, creeping through behind 66601 The Hope Valley.

Dual-piped JNA wagon, VTG 3408 (Marcroft, Stoke, 1998), in the consist.
