Preston (Ribble Branch)

DBS Class 60 60059 Swinden Dalesman is named after the quarry at the end of the Grassington line. On 16 July it found itself on another freight only branch, seen here cautiously picking its way through the long grass towards the STOP board for Strand Road level crossing. The train was, unusually, almost an hour late on arrival at Preston Docks exchange sidings due to being delayed by a derailed Class 66 at Brocklesby.
