Getting a Move On

66.565 worked 6V18, the 11:20 Allington - Whatley Quarry stone empties, past the west end of Hungerford loop as it crossed Hungerford Common on 19 April 2021. The loop is only accessible to trains on the Up line and is booked to be used by several loaded trains each weekday. In the Down direction there's nowhere to recess a slow moving freight for 26 miles between Newbury and Woodborough, which can be a problem when the IETs are only 30 minutes apart. Fortunately most westbound freights are empties and can get a move on when required.
