66024 Little Heck 20 March 2000

66024 heads down the ECML at Little Heck with the 6D47 10:49 Wardley to Doncaster Decoy Yard MGR on 20 March 2000. The weak spring sunshine seen here didn't last long, just look at those black clouds rolling in from north! The train is just about to pass under the M62 motorway bridge, and directly afterwards the site of the following year's terrible accident caused by a Land Rover driver falling asleep and crashing down onto the line, subsequently being hit by a southbound GNER service.
