66176 Brigg 12 March 2013

The severe landslip that occurred at Hatfield Colliery on 12 February 2013 resulted in numerous freight diversions in the Humberside area, as the main Scunthorpe to Doncaster line was completely blocked by the incident. The little used line from Barnetby to Gainsborough came into its own, with a vast increase in freight traffic. Exactly one month after the slip, on 12 March 2013, 66176 passes through Brigg station with the 12:50 Humber International Terminal to Eggborough Power Station coal. The route is single track northwards from the signal box in the background.
