GB Railfreight Class 66/7 No. 66723 'Chinook' passes Burton-on-Trent with working 7X10, 10:10 Banbury to Derby Litchurch Lane on Tuesday 8th July 2014. The formation, comprised of LUL S8 8-car set No. 21093/21094, with Class 20s No. 20107 and 20096 at the rear had departed earlier as the 03:20 Amersham to Derby but the leading pair of Class 20s No. 20118 and 20132 apparently 'ran out of fuel' and the train was therefore terminated at Banbury. Class 66/7 No. 66723 'Chinook' was commandeered from Ironbridge Power Station and despatched light engine to Banbury to take over as motive power and haul the complete train to Derby.
