Today was the turn of DBS 'Army' locomotive number 60040 to do the honours with the empty steel working 6E08 from Wolverhampton. This is the fourth Class 60 to appear over the Sutton Park line this week (the others were 60049, 71 and 73, and additionally 60011 has been passing nearby Water Orton on tanks), which isn't bad going considering that there are only half a dozen left in service !

60073 made a surprise appearance this afternoon on the returning Wolverhampton - Immingham steel 'pigshed' empties, 6E08. It must be a good 3 years since I last saw the locomotive (see post 'Sixties at Aldridge' of November 2007).
Also making a show was 70006 working the same train as Josh photographed yesterday (4V74). It'a a good few months since I saw one of this class too, and i'm still waiting to get a shot of one working a freightliner container train across the Park, which to my knowledge hasn't happened yet ...
