56302 & 56087 coast down the Lickey with 6X56 11:25 Scunthorpe - Long Marston at Vigo. This stretch of line to Bromsgrove is in the process of being electrified with most of the groundwork and mast bases already in place.

This special was to take stock to Long Marston for a Network Rail industry event and the train was running in the order of 220 minutes late when it passed me at 20:16, possibly making it the latest full sun shot I've taken, helped by the fact that 20th June 2016 was summer solstice 2016 being a leap year.
