4th July 2018
Colas Rail Freight Class 70 No.70810 emerges from Somerset into a wet Devon on Wednesday 4th July 2018. It's incredibly rare to be able to capture the southbound loaded cement into Cornwall as it normally passes Taunton during the early hours, however, on this occasion, the train was running later because of the Severn Tunnel engineering closure and was therefore diverted via Gloucester. The locomotive is pictured at Whiteball during an equally rare summer downpour which brought some respite from the recent heat wave hauling the 6C35 05:15 Aberthaw - Moorswater loaded Cement
