56003 Levington 25 July 1996

With a wave from the driver, 56003 rounds the curve at Levington with the 4M87 16:04 Felixstowe North to Trafford Park freightliner on 25 July 1996. At this time Freightliner had a pool of four hired in Class 56s from Loadhaul to work the freightliner trains on the Felixstowe branch, handing over to electric traction at Ipswich. The single track branch could be a little restrictive at times and there was constant talk of doubling the line. 56003 has since been preserved, and retains its Loadhaul livery.
