70009 & 66548 Standish Junction 30 January 2011

The story of the unlucky Class 70s continues. 70009 approaches Standish Junction on 30 January 2011 with the 0Z25 Stoke Gifford to Crewe Basford Hall, hauling 66548. 70009 could not be moved north from Newport after being unloaded from the ship in early January due to a seized traction motor. The bogies were removed from 70005 and installed under 70009, eventually allowing its delayed move north, as seen here. I suppose it was lucky that they didn't drop it whilst being unloaded like 70012!
