Class 373 'Eurostar' EMUs No. 373004 and No. 373003 pass Wichnor Junction, Staffordshire on 15th December 2016 being towed by GBRf Class 66/7 No. 66768 that is hauling the 20-vehicle formation to Kingsbury for disposal by European Metals Recycling (EMR). The special working departed from London St. Pancras International at 23:27 the previous evening but due to the failure of DB Cargo Class 60 No. 60040 at Kingsbury Oil Terminal earlier in the day this special working was delayed at Branston Junction, Burton-on-Trent, due to a preceeding Kingsbury-bound oil train also being held (at Elford loop) until the failure had been cleared therefore its final destination was reached over five hours later than scheduled.
