D6575's mission on the 17th December. By Ian Robins.
Ian has provided some photos and words from D6575's recent mission to help safeguard the operation of a
charter through to Minehead.
D6575 was used to give rear end assistance to 6960 on a ten coach through train from Victoria to Minehead on
Saturday 17/12. It was brought in as far as Norton Fitzwarren by 34046 with 47 802 on the rear.
The Crompton assisted down to Minehead and back to BL on the return.
I’ve attached pictures of the light engine movement down from Williton and at NF where we had plenty of time
so went right up to stop block on the Barnstaple line! Mike Harris was the driver and Darren Hill secondman.
Happy New Year to all our readers.
