I had moved to the other side of the line to get into the car and move when 221117 approached from the south heading for Edinburgh with 1S60 1220 from Birmingham New Street. The snow on the hills behind Crawford looks great.
A pair of Freightliner class 86 locos head south and cross Crawford Bridge with the daily Freightliner service to Crewe, 4M74 1401 from Coatbridge. The lowering sun reflects off the rear windscreens of 86604.
The first couple of flats were devoid of containers which gives this good view of the two veteran 46 year old locos still gainfully employed.
