66203 failed on the wool sand on parkstone bank on the return working to eastliegh. Thanks to jim for letting me know. eplacement buses operated for about 2-3 hours. The recuse 66 left eastleigh while i was there. Whats more is the rescuse 66 had to pull another 66 and 30 loaded sand wagons from a standing on a 1 in 50 grade. Imagine a 37 on this!!!
