66149 Burbage Common.Looking smart in DB livery, 66149 passes through Burbage Common, near Hinckley, working 6V92 Corby - Margam steel empties. Seeing it was a nice sunny day in Leicestershire with more or less wall to wall blue sky I ventured out to my local spot as there was 2 freight services due. First off was DB liveried 66149 working 6V92 Corby - Margam steel empties with quite a lengthy rake of steel carriers. The second service was GBRf's 66740 Sarah working 6G16 Stud Farm - Bescot loaded ballast boxes, conveying nearly 2000 tons of Leicestershire to the virtual quarry near Birmingham.
Arriving to the spot, I seen there was already a few cars parked at the side of the road by Burbage Common and my first reaction was "This is a lot of people just for a DB Shed" alas as it happens, I had just missed Rail Operations Group 37800 working back to Leicester from Northampton Kings Heath Depot as the handful of enthusiasts that were returning to their vehicles told me, once I told them that 66149 was coming some changed their minds and also decided to wait for the shed too anyway.
Afterwards, it was back home as i had dinner to cook and get ready for my first night shift of the week.
