56007 Chester 17 August 1996

56007 passes through Chester on 17 August 1996 with the early running 6F45 17:28 Dee Marsh to Warrington Arpley Enterprise service, comprised entirely of empty OTA timber wagons from Shotton Paper Mill. Whenever I saw this train, or its loaded outward run, it was well off from its booked time. In this case over two hours early, and a couple of months previously, four hours late!
