66177 Cholsey 28 April 2015

66177 passes Cholsey on 28 April 2015 with the 6O15 17:27 Mossend Down Yard to Eastleigh, the nearest thing that exists in 2015 to the old fashioned wagonload freight train. 66177's white cab roofs are a pathetic attempt to cure the problem of overheating cabs in hot weather. The loco's basic specification meant that unbelievably for a modern loco, air conditioning was not specified during construction, leading to very poor working conditions for drivers during the summer.
