66079 Appleford 5 August 2022

The last time I visited Appleford I photographed a freight train diverted from the Birmingham to Cheltenham line, and on my visit of 5 August 2022 the same thing happened! 66079 James Nightall GC should have arrived at its destination at 06:38 with the 6V70 23:44 Liverpool Euro Metal to Swindon Cocklebury scrap empties, but it is pictured here passing Appleford, running off route, and six hours late!
