4.7.08 66415 4M78 Elderslie - Kirkby Thore, Kirkby Thore - Kirkby Thore
In mid-2008 after a sucessful trial, a brand new freight flow began operating on the northern end of the S&C. The new flow took finished product (plasterboard) from the British Gypsum plant at Kirkby Thore to a delivery point at Elderslie in Renfrewshire near Glasgow. DRS locomotives operated the new freight service which was timed to arrive at Kirkby Thore after 9pm. This meant that only a glint was a realistic option for a decent shot and even then only at the hieght of summer when the days were long. This was my first attempt at a glint shot of the 4M78 Elderslie - Kirkby Thore empties and turned out to be slighly more succesful than the second. The immaculate 66415 slows down in preparation to reverse into the plant. This shot was published in the 'Line by Line - Settle & Carlisle' book by Martin Buck.
