For operational reasons the Borders Railway rail-discharge train is worked by two GBRf class 66s and normally they both seem to be involved propelling the train at the actual work site. However on 24 and 25 November 2014, at least, when rail laying was taking place through Stow, one detached from the train and spent the day parked about half a mile north of Stow station at the point where the southernmost loop starts - this seems to have been labelled Galabank Junction, although for a traditional railway enthusiast like myself, one set of points at the end of a loop doesn't really qualify as a 'junction'!
