56096 to Westbury and back, 26th April 2024

56096 on driver training or similar. There is once again talk of a flow to Eastleigh of sleepers from Cemex Halling Cement Works in Kent.

0F75 10:13 Eastleigh East Yard - Westbury Down T.C.

0F76 12:23 Westbury Down T.C. - Eastleigh East Yard

As 56096 leaves the Chandlers Ford line at Eastleigh, 59203 enters with 59203 6V62 13:21 Up Yard - Westbury Tarmac

56096 runs into platform 3 at Eastleigh.

The crew then changed ends to run into the East Yard.

56096 was then parked and shut down. We await advice of the next workings -  0F75 and 0F76 are listed again on Tuesday 30th - but were cancelled.
