59003 Souldern Wharf 25 October 2018

Even without knowing beforehand, it was pretty obvious what loco was going to be on this, simply by the headcode! 59003 Yeoman Highlander passes Souldern Wharf on 25 October 2018 with the 6Z59 09:27 Eastleigh Works to Hexthorpe Yard, conveying 16 redundant ex Fastline coal hoppers. This was running in the path of the cancelled 6M40 11:56 Westbury to Stud Farm ballast empties, which 59003 would normally have worked. Just as the train was due, the local farmer asked if I could move off the bridge, as he wanted to bring his cows in for milking. He kindly waited while I took the photo, before fencing off the road, and driving the herd across.
