66156 Severn Tunnel Junction 22 February 2003

With Rogiet church in the background, the last rays of the setting sun illuminate 66156 as it passes Severn Tunnel Junction with the 6M68 08:33 Burngullow to Warrington china clay slurry on Saturday 22 February 2003. This train would then work forward the following day as the 6S55 17:00 Warrington to Irvine, a very rare Sunday revenue earning freight train. The overgrown area on both sides of the line here is the site of the once extensive Severn Tunnel Junction Yard.
