Steel traffic featuring DBS and Colas.
Last Update: 24/4/13.
66001 - 6O32, 24/4/13.
Still fairly fresh from Toton's paintshop, 66001 passes Patchway with 6O32 Llanwern-Dollands Moor steel.
66063 - 6O32, 28/7/12.
At Ram Hill, 66063 is working hard to move a heavy 6O32 Margam-Dollands Moor.
66197 - 6O32, 22/7/12.
My first steel image for over six months, at last summer 2012 arrives as 66197 passes Patchway with 6O32 Margam-Dollands Moor.
66197 - 6B50, 3/1/12.
66197 on the approach to Bristol Parkway, working I believe 6B50 Swindon Steel Terminal-Newport Docks. Shame about the pair of Voyagers.
66152 - 6V13, 27/8/11.
After a very brief rest in Pilning's down goods loop, 66152 gets under way again with 6V13 Dollands Moor-Trostre.
66745 - 6O78, 3/8/11.
On a pleasant August afternoon, 66745 passes Patchway with 6O78 Margam/Llanwern-Dollands Moor.
66079 -6V13, 27/7/11.
Negotiating the reverse curves approaching the site of Coalpit Heath Station, 66079 heads 6V13 Dollands Moor-Trostre. The time was a rather bleary eyed 06:42.
66021 - 6Z12, 18/6/11.
Just occasionally I try some thing different, and I was quite pleased with this. The horses are understandably completely disinterested in 66021 approaching Coalpit Heath with 6Z12 Dollands Moor-Trostre.
66119 - 6Z12, 25/5/11.
66119 passes Patchway in lovely early morning sunshine with 6Z12 Dollands Moor-Trostre.
66110 - 6B50, 24/5/11.
Having taken a sixteen minute layover in Pilning's down goods loop, 66110 restarts its journey for South Wales heading 6B50 Swindon Steel Terminal-Newport Docks.
66027 - 6B50, 20/5/11.
66027 scurries through Pilning with a rather lightweight 6B50 Swindon Steel Terminal-Newport Docks.
66080 - 6E47, 8/5/11.
In lovely weather, 66080 noisily passes Patchway with the Sunday 6E47 Llanwern-Tees Yard loaded steel, diverted away from the Chepstow line due to engineering works.
66184 - 6B49, 26/4/11.
66184 passes Severn Tunnel Junction in charge of 6B49 Llanwern-Swindon Steel Terminal.
66184 - 6B50, 26/4/11.
Approaching Ivory Hill, Winterbourne, 66184 passes with 6B50 Swindon Steel Terminal-Newport Docks.
66843 - 6Z78, 17/4/11.
The Sunday Colas steel workings in 2011 proved incredibly popular with photographers, note the gaggle of them at the end of Patchway's platform 2 here. Heading 6Z78 Margam-Dollands Moor (bound ultimately for Germany), 66843 passes on a lovely warm day.
66175 - 6Z14, 15/4/11.
Passing Patchway, 66175 heads 6Z14 Llanwern-Dollands Moor (bound I believe ultimately for Holland).
66841 - 6O78, 3/3/11.
Taken in the most dreadful light, I've included this photograph as subsequently enroute to Dollands Moor with 6O78 66841 failed, being rescued by 66842 dispatched from Colas HQ at Rugby.
