66846, Princes Risborough, 6C24, 18th April 2014
The second southbound Colas working up the Chiltern line on the morning of Friday 18th April 2014 was 6C24 with 66846 providing the power. This was the 06:35 from Hinksey Sidings to Southall East Junction loaded ballast train, passing through Princes Risborough on the Up Main Line at 08:29½, one minute late. It had been running a few minutes early but was stopped outside Risborough while a northbound unit crossed from the down to the up line in order to get to the Aylesbury line, so 66846 is now working hard in anticipation of the climb to Saunderton in the Chiltern hills.
