18th August 2010. DB-Shenker locomotive 66058 in EWS livery runs past Coxes Mill on its way from Eastleigh to Hoo Junction. This train runs as 6Y41 each weekday taking engineering materials wagons to Hoo Junction in preparation for weekend engineering work. On this day there were no wagons to be moved, so the locomotive made the journey without a load as train 0Y41, the leading zero indicating that it was a "light engine" without any wagons.
