66605 in the Up Dudley Siding, Pleck Jct
66605 has just detached from 6M78 Immingham - Rugeley in the Up Dudley Siding at Pleck Jct. After drawing forward to the stop board the driver dismounts so that he can change the trailing point which leads to the shunt neck, which is situated under the southbound lane of the M6, at the site of the former Bescot Curve Jct (a few yards behind the camera). The loco will then cross to the former down Dudley line and proceed to a position just beyond the Wednesbury Road bridge at Pleck Jct, where a dummy signal controls a reversing move across a trailing crossover back to the up Dudley line. This shot was taken at 10:00 on Thursday 9th April 2015.
