66403 Long Marston 6 September 2010

66403 leaves Long Marston on 6 September 2010 with the 6E53 13:11 Long Marston to Doncaster Decoy, conveying a rake of Fastline coal hoppers, which had been in store at the depot  for several months following the collapse of Fastline. 66403 is one of the former DRS locos which is now on hire to GBRf, hence the rather crudely painted out DRS logo on the side. Although the loco had arrived, coupled up to the wagons, and performed a brake test long before the booked departure time, the crew decided to wait for the official time to leave. During this long wait it gradually got brighter, then the sun came out unexpectedly, and then of course it went back in again!
