60024 Appleford 15 August 2019

60024 Clitheroe Castle approaches Appleford on 15 August 2019 with the 6C58 11:45 Oxford Banbury Road to Whatley Quarry stone empties. This was running exactly to time, which was very fortunate, as this corresponded with one of the few lengthy sunny spells. The use of Class 60s on these trains in the dying days of DB Cargo operation, is due to two of the more usual Class 59/2s being sent to Toton for inspection by potential purchasers.
