70004 at Bescot
70004 worked 6Z96 Crewe - Toton on Tuesday 15th January 2013, and is seen on the approach to Bescot at 13:38. It had been waiting at the signal for over 30 minutes, and eventually went into the downside. It subsequently left for Toton at 15:15, with the same train consisting of JZA rail carrying wagons. This train called at Bescot for traffic reasons, and normally the wagons brought from Crewe and those taken forward to Toton were at least partly different, so this was unusual. This remained a fairly reliable Class 70 job, despite the loads being typically moderate in weight, until DRS took over the working on Monday 20th January 2014.
