66711 South Marston 10 November 2017

66711 Sense passes South Marston on 10 November 2017 with the 6V78 09:50 Grain to Llanwern steel empties. This recently started GBRf working echoes the Colas train of a couple of years earlier. I thought this picture was going to be ruined, as just before the train was due, the sun disappeared into the edge of a large bank of cloud in the west. Luckily, at the very last moment the sun weakly came out again, and whilst not full strength, was an awful lot better than it was just seconds before! In view of the cloud, I decided not to wait for the 6B33 Theale to Robeston tanks. This was a wise move, as the train had failed at Didcot, and didn't pass this spot until after dark!
