Now it gets serious! The first loaded train off the Weardale Railway in many years. 66842 brought the loaded coal train from the dales down to Bishop Auckland, being seen near Witton-le-Wear, Witton Park and then on the main network at Shildon and Darlington.
This was the first true run of the service from Wolsingham to Scunthorpe, with some other destinations being suggested for other flows in the future.
