D1015 at Cam and Dursley 10-1-2024

Enjoy a few photos of Western Champions Main Line test run that were photographed on the 10th of January 2024 of D1015 storming through Cam and Dursley Station, piloting 66714 on the 6M42 09.20 Avonmouth Hanson to Penyfford empty cement tanks. This unique working was a running in turn prior to its main line return. The locomotive was piloting the train as far as Haresfield loop (and not Gloucester yard as planned, due to late running from a points failure near Bristol), after this it would have returned to the (SVR) Kidderminster. Even though the weather was cold many turned out along the route to witness a Diesel Hydraulic on the main line.
