86607 & 86610 Brock 6 May 2008

86607 & 86610 pass Brock with the 4M74 13:00 Coatbridge to Crewe freightliner on 6 May 2008. It always seems a little strange seeing a pair of 4040 hp electric locos hauling freightliners, while on other routes a single 3200 hp Class 66 handles a similar length train. Although this looks like a pleasant rural location, it is in fact incredibly noisy, as the M6 motorway is just behind the trees on the right, paralleling the railway for some miles north of Preston.
