60011 & 60068 Up Hatherley 6 April 2009

60011 passes Up Hatherley with 60068 Charles Darwin dead in tow on 6 April 2009 with the 6E41 11:18 Westerleigh to Lindsey oil empties. 60068 had run into problems two days previously whilst working the 6V98 Lindsey to Westerleigh tanks and due to loss of power arrived very late. Because of this the tatty patch painted Mainline blue liveried 60011 was sent to assist with the return empties. In view of the very small number of Class 60s left in traffic, getting a picture of two locomotives on one train, neither of which is in EWS livery was not to missed. To emphasize the point I chose to go to Up Hatherley where I had seen 60068 on the same train a few weeks before. Unfortunately by the time the train came the lighting was very poor.
