Freightliner Class 66/5 No. 66545 is pictured approaching Drakelow East Curve Junction, Burton-on-Trent on 2nd October 2012 with a new working 6D78, 0703 Willesden Euro Terminal to Bardon Hill Quarry. The train, having undertaken a reversal at Burton-on-Trent is seen traversing the very lightly-used freight-only route between Burton-on-Trent and Leicester and is comprised of 20 empty JNA wagons that will be loaded with aggregates at the Leicestershire quarry before returning to London later in the day.
