Freight at Dunbridge, 23rd September 2021


66524 6V62 13:21 Up Yard - Whatley.

66529 4M65 13:45 Maritime - Lawley Street - 100% "fresh air express".

59103 Village of Mells 7V07 13:41 Chichester - Merehead.

66749 Christopher Hopwood MBE 60 Years Railway Service tows failed 59003 YEOMAN HIGHLANDER as  6Z41 14:24 Westbury - Eastleigh. 59003 had been a bad engine, and failed blocking the main line just short of Warminster station. The Fat Controller was unhappy with Highlander, and told the driver to secure the train, then sent him back to Westbury on a passenger train to pick up a shiny 1Z99 locomotive to rescue a gloomy Highlander - who is wondering if he is going to be sent inside the big Arlington Works again soon.

Meanwhile, 66798 made its debut on the circuit with a late running 6V40 14:05 Eastleigh-Westbury. Until recently this was 561-03 of Rail Feeding.

66585, with cab still in original condition, 4O57 13:29 Wentloog - Maritime.

The first KTA wagon was GERS 97751, already identified as part of what I consider as the second 'KTA Liner' set.
