66522 at Burton Salmon on 2nd February 2013

Freightliner Class 66/5 No. 66522 heads south at Burton Salmon working the 6M49 08:09 Hull Kingston Terminal to Rugeley Power Station coal on 2nd February 2013. Engineering works at Colton Junction meant that all ECML services were being diverted between Doncaster and York. This was the first southbound train observed after arrival on the bridge at Burton Salmon and several trains in the area had been delayed by a charter train which had failed at Milford Junction. Visible in the distance is the rear of a northbound empty coal train which had just begun moving having been at a stand for over 30 minutes. Several more delayed northbound workings would follow in quick succession as seen in the next images.
