66119 Box Tunnel 31 December 2021

Running nearly an hour late, 66119 emerges from Box Tunnel on 31 December 2021 with the diverted 6B41 11:15 Westerleigh to Robeston empty oil tanks. 66035 Resourceful is still deep inside the tunnel on the rear of the train. The reason for top'n'tailing was the several reversals needed in the train's convoluted diversionary route. The unusual sight of a tank train emerging from Brunel's famous tunnel was the reason for taking this picture in such miserable light.
