The  0700- 0800 local turns

The rapidly darkening mornings have just about killed off photting our popular

0700 - 0800 local session. However tonights clocks back as we revert to GMT, will

allow for around 2 weeks, the 0700 - 0800 turn to be photable, locally once more.

Passing times 0700 - 0800 at Leighton selected traffic

0712    1M16 2045 Inverness/Fort William - Euston "Caledonian sleeper"    92

0716    2N10   0650 Northampton - Euston                                                         319 units

0716    4M21  0310 Felixstowe - Trafford Pk                                                     66'7

0731    4M45  0250 Felixstowe - Garston liner                                                    86 x 2

0750    4L89   2133 Coatbridge - Felixstowe "Up Scotch" liners                      86 x 2

0800    2B24   0753 Bletchley - Euston                                                                319 units

0803    4M46  0300 Felixstowe - East Mids Gateway                                         66'5

Considering there are currently only 11 operable Freightliner 86'6 to see 4 on a

a regular basis is quite something in 2020

The 0700 - 0800 local session is highly recommended, catch it before the Winter dark returns!
