Heading For Hope

The daily cement trains from Hope to Theale and back brings Freightliner Class 66/6s to the Berks and Hants, for a few miles at least. The inbound working runs overnight but the return was ideally timed for a shot at Burghfield Road, between Theale and Southcote Junction before it was poled.

66.613 was in charge of 6M91, the 11:13 empty cement tanks from Theale to Earles Sidings, Hope on 15 September 2016. The train runs via Acton to reach the Midland Main Line.
