From nearby, it a hark back to the golden days of marshalling yards, with buffers gently clanking, coupling being dropped, and the hissing of brake pipes as the trains are shuffled around. The whole process can take a few hours. Though it may seem a bit grotesque that a 126 tonne class 66 does the work rather than a resident class 08 or 09 diesel shunter.
The sun rose rather majestically this morning causing this rather super sun / shade effect across the trains and frozen infrastructure. The "dreaded" long term GM loco 66156 is back with us. Let's hope it's a shorter stay than a few years ago.
Cheers Craig Munday Many thanks Craig
Roger Winnen has also been diving into his massive collection and provides pictures of Hayle Wharves Ground Frame, however, lets start with the box at Hayle from an unusual angle. Many thanks Roger.
