66158 Uffington 1 June 2009

66158 passes Uffington with the featherweight 6M17 18:08 Newport Alexandra Dock Junction to Wembley Enterprise service on 1 June 2009. Obviously the recession is at work here, as this was formerly a very well loaded train. Although this loco is less than ten years old there is a huge amount of rust visible below the bodyside grilles. The poor standards of construction for this class are well known, but this kind of quality control is reminiscent of 1970s British Leyland!
