Nuneaton Abbey Junction

When it snows in Nuneaton, it usually melts within 2 hours; so its best to catch it while it lasts. My efforts on 29th December 2020 were rewarded with this unusual working - three 66/7s should be able to cope with four unloaded flat wagons. 66731 'Captain Tom Moore' was leading the consist, with 66749 dead in tow; and an absolutely filthy 66735 bringing up the rear. The train originated at Peterborough, lost 2 hours 43 minutes shunting at Leicester, and was nearing the end of its journey to Hams Hall.
