56113 Little Haresfield 9 January 2019

56113 pulls out of Haresfield loop on 9 January 2019 with the 6Z01 05:29 Derby RTC to Okehampton, conveying Network Rail Loram rail grinder C2101, which explains the 'Loram Rail Operations' headboard. Bringing up the rear are 20142 Sir John Betjeman & 20189. This was 65 minutes running late, which was an advantage, as the shadows were not as bad as when I first arrived at the public footpath crossing from which this picture is taken. It was also fortunate because I encountered two sets of roadworks en-route to my first choice of location (the footpath a little further south of this spot), and would only just have made it, had it being running to time. As it actually left Derby 79 minutes late, I knew I had some leeway!
