Preston South Junction

Breasting the top of the 1:29 incline of the Preston Dock branch 66182 emerges opposite the platforms of Preston station on 20 July 2011. The steepness of the gradient can clearly be seen but the fourteen VTG bitumen tanker empties behind the locomotive cannot. This MWF only train then followed The Fellsman steam excursion to Blackburn before taking the Copy Pit line back to Lindsey refinery in North Lincolnshire.
