9th May 2011. Diesel-electric class 66 locomotive 66701 heads train 4E19 westwards through the Windsor Line platforms at Clapham Junction station. This was a train of flat wagons carrying gypsum containers from Mountfield to West Burton Power Station. The Rail Album Webmaster changed trains at Clapham Junction long after this train was due to have passed, so was surprised to then see it in front of him, running late. The photograph had to be taken there and then, as there was no time to even change any settings on the camera..
