Tarnished Tanks

66.109 rounded the curve at Carmont, south of Stonehaven, with 6D84, the 13:45 Aberdeen Waterloo to Mossend china clay tanks, on 25 October 2017. From Mossend, the tanks will be taken to the paper mills at Irvine or Workington as required.

Not quite the gleaming 'Silver Bullets' that used to run regularly from Burngullow to Irvine behind pairs of 37s but that was another time and a very different railway.
