66089 Denchworth 19 September 2015

The 6V62 Tilbury to Llanwern steel empties, which had brought Colas Class 56s, 60s 66s & 70s to the Thames Valley on a regular basis, unfortunately changed to DBS haulage in September 2015. An unusual turn of events, as we are all so used to Colas grabbing traffic from DBS, not the other way round! As I was already at Denchworth on 19 September 2015, I decided to wait for the train, as the sun was out. Unfortunately it turned out to be a longer wait than I anticipated, as the train had a protracted layover at Didcot, and passed me an hour late. So here is the new order, 66089 with the 6V62 11:20 Tilbury to Margam passing under the signal gantry at Denchworth.
