37019 Winwick 28 July 1992

37019 passes Winwick on 28 July 1992 with the 6K85 11:00 Carlisle to Crewe Basford Hall MoD stores train. This traffic would formerly have traveling via the Speedlink network, but after the wagonload network was abandoned in 1991 a small dedicated MoD service was established, based largely on the old Speedlink workings. As can be seen here, the trunk workings could be very well loaded. Presumably the four vintage VEA vans near the front of the train are carrying explosives, hence the barrier wagons either side.
