70003 Gossington 5 March 2010

70003 passes Gossington on 5 March 2010 with the 4Z70 08:53 Rugeley Power Station to Stoke Gifford coal empties. Running on time and sounding impressive, 70003 is obviously in much better health here than its classmate 70002 was three days previously when it failed on the same working. On that occasion it had to be rescued by 66585. Unfortunately these much vaunted locomotives have so far not proved to be as stunningly reliable as promised. Let's hope things improve soon!
