Motive power considerably longer than train. With the DRS Class 20 locos in Eastleigh for assessment the Class 66s are frequently being rostered on flask trains. With only a fraction of the 6600hp available being used 66428 and 66425 hustle the 6K73 Sellafield to Crewe, comprising a single flask wagon, south passing Broad Fall Farm at Scorton on a Monday evening. This train is a useful means of getting locomotives to Crewe too and the previous Monday had two Class 37s in tow in addition to the two 66s.
