GB Railfreight's euro-spec 66747 is seen here passing Broomfleet Signal Box with the 6C72 Hull Coal Terminal - Eggborough Power Station service. What makes it unusual is the use of JNA and KEA scrap wagons for coal traffic; GBRf have been using these for a good few months now however only in the last couple of weeks have they been seen in day light! Previously they ran empty to Hull Docks in late evening and came out full at around six o'clock in the morning.
However they are now running two return trips a day so the the first loaded working and second empty journey can be be seen at less unsociable times!
