Freightliner at Eastleigh, 19th August 2022


70004 The Coal Industry Society arriving with 4M61 12:24 Southampton M.C.T. - Trafford Park F.L.T.  The Up Slow from Eastleigh - Shawford is currently unavailable, and this is causing some longer waits in the station.

66587 AS ONE WE CAN approaches with 4Z99 0824 Garston F.L.T. - Southampton M.C.T.

The upper door handle has been subject to a modification, which appears to have been applied across the Freightliner Class 66 fleet since last winter, and seems to be Health and Safety orientated, to prevent fingers being injured by the door.

66599 laying over in the yard, also has the modification.
