A train of Class 37s is seen shortly after passing through the former Felixstowe Beach station running towards the junction near Felixstowe. From there, the locomotives will head to Ipswich for servicing see image 34707. At the time, in April 1984, the heavy freightliner trains to the container port at Felixstowe were double-headed and this peculiar working helped ease the congestion on the line before the loop to Trimley was built.
