D1015 Cossington 12 November 2013

Autumn 2013 sees the unusual sight of a Western out on the mainline hauling freight. Who would have believed that could happen a few years ago! On hire to GBRf, D1015 Western Champion was first used on Scunthorpe to Wellingborough continuous welded rails trains, and then on the 6D02 11:21 Wellingborough to Mountsorrel stone empties. Here it is with the latter working passing Cossington on 12 November 2013, under an unfortunately timed big black cloud!
