Hard Slog

The gradient from Great Rocks Junction, through Peak Dale and up to Dove Holes Tunnel presents a real challenge for the many heavily laden stone trains that use it, with the locomotives usually working flat-out in notch 8 on the power controller. Freightliner 66587 'As One, We Can' is getting underway from Tunstead Sidings with the 16:49 to Northampton Castle Yard on a very hot 8th September 2021. The heat and exhaust haze from the locomotive distorts the view towards the stabling sidings at Peak Forest South Junction.
