66087 Milton 10 December 2009

After the end of the Rail Head Treatment Train season in December 2009, DB Schenker withdrew all but a handful of their Class 60s, resulting in long standing 60 turns such as the 6B33 13:33 Theale to Robeston Murco oil empties being entrusted to Class 66s. Although empty here, the 24 tanks when loaded must be right on the limit of what can be hauled by a 66. 66087 heads west along the relief line at Milton on 10 December 2009, with Didcot Power Station dominating the background.
