57310 & 57002 Standish Junction 8 July 2015

57310 Pride of Cumbria & 57002 pass Standish Junction on 8 July 2015 with the 6V73 04:33 Crewe to Berkeley nuclear flasks. Note the two different DRS colour schemes. The two Magnox reactors at Berkeley Power Station were decommissioned in 1989, and the nearby Oldbury Power Station also closed in 2012. Decommissioning at Oldbury will take a number of years, and so the sight of pairs of DRS locos (20s, 37s or 57s) working flasks through Gloucestershire will continue for some time.
