66719 at Bordseley Jct
66719 rolls downhill towards Bordesley Jct at 08:59 on Saturday 6th June 2015. The train is 6E89 Portbury - Hexthorpe Yard, formed of empty MJA box wagons. The loaded service conveys gypsum from West Burton Power Station to Portbury Dock. 6E89 had been standing at the signal in rear for over 20 minutes, most of it in sunshine. It's booked to follow 4M62 Southampton - Lawley St through the junction, and duly did. However by the time it moved a big block of cloud blowing in from the west had arrived. The sun was poking faintly through the cloud, but it wasn't the shot I'd hoped for. A second attempt at Saltley Viaduct produced no luck with the light either.
