56303 Hexthorpe 28 July 2008

With a wave from the driver, 56303 accelerates the 4O90 10:44 Doncaster Railport to Thamesport (Isle of Grain) Fastline Intermodal train past Hexthorpe on 28 July 2008. Luckily this was running an hour late, which not only meant that the sun was just starting to appear on the front of the loco, but also that there actually was some sun, as it was completely cloudy at the booked time! The train is just a few minutes into its journey, having started from just around the corner to the right. A well loaded train, which was not normally the case when the service first started running.
