Track renewal took place between Danby and Lealholm stations on the Whitby branch during late September 2020. Colas 70803, with 70811 at the rear, is slowly moving forward as a ballast drop takes place on the section of line relaid over the previous day and night. Milepost 23 1/2 can be seen to the right of the first hopper wagon. A further top and tailed rake of loaded hoppers with 70812 leading and 70805 at the rear would follow with a further ballast drop that was completed with two hoppers left full.
