66718 Thrupp 8 September 2020

66718 Sir Peter Hendy CBE passes Thrupp on 8 September 2020 with the 6X01 10:18 Scunthorpe to Eastleigh long welded rails. In 2020 this train can almost guaranteed to be an hour early at this point. As usual it was more or less on time at Birmingham, but then missed out its booked stops at Dorridge, Fenny Compton and Aynho, and was therefore 62 minutes early here. On this occasion it continued its speedy progress, arriving at Reading 74 minutes ahead of time. From there on there were some delays, and it arrived at Eastleigh just ten minutes early.
