WCML overnight freight variety at Preston 27th - 28th February 2018
Second night owl filming of 2018 as we settle down with sub-temperatures of -6c and wind chill making it -10c. Starting off Freightliner 86s with the usual freight flows before seeing 66603 powering through with 2000 tonnes of stone to Hardendale and 66301 with 88002 on 6C18. 92044 giving 86101 a lift with 1M11 which ended up behind 1M16 92010. 8F 48151 popped by Preston while working 5Z72 to Farington Jn to join on a charter. The weather was well as I say rather cold which didn't stop me attempting to do this all night, sadly this was the last lot of overnight freight filmed as 28th February the snow closed the WCML between Carlisle and Scotland meaning all passenger and freight traffic was suspended.
