The short Westerleigh branch linking Yate and the Westerleigh oil terminal regularly sees DB Cargo Class 60 locomotives hauling the heavy oil traffic from Robeston. In a departure from its more mundane duties, DBC Class 60 No. 60001 is seen at the helm of Pathfinder Tours 'The Severn Aggregator' at Westerleigh village with Class 66/0 No. 66230 bringing up the rear. The railtour which started at Banbury also visited Machen quarry and the Sharpness Dock branch prior to returning to Banbury later that day on 13th January 2018.
