56113 & 56087 Grove 14 July 2014

The morning of 14 July 2014 presented something of a dilemma, with the option of two interesting Class 56 workings. Should I go to Long Marston for the 6Z56 working to Chaddesden, or the Vale of White Horse Line for the 6Z16 09:23 Llanwern to Washwood Heath (via Oxford) covered steel wagons. I correctly assumed that 56312 would work the Long Marston trip, but as there were three Colas 56s at Llanwern, a double header on the Washwood Heath train seemed likely. As it was also nearer, that option won! So here are 56113 & 56087 romping along the up main line at Grove with the 6Z16 09:23 Llanwern to Washwood Heath.
