156511 Annan 8 June 2007

156511 approaches Annan with the 12:39 Newcastle to Stranraer service on 8 June 2007. Note the extensive earthworks in connection with the re-instatement of the double track. The section of single track between Gretna and Annan is a considerable operational bottleneck, especially with the increase in coal traffic from the Ayr district.
