56311 at Wichnor Jct
A shortage of serviceable Fastline 56s meant that Hanson traction locos were being used in summer 2008. This is 4O90 Doncaster - Grain, photographed on Monday 9th June. It didn't depart Doncaster until 15:30 and ran via Newark and Nottingham. A gallery of nine had assembled at Wichnor Jct by the time 56311 passed at 18:13, and we were treated to something of a horn-fest by the enthusiastic driver.
