    Assume it will be a/some Freightliner 66(s)


    Top one I'm most certain would be a DBS 66, looks like the Doncaster-Warrington wagonload. Second one, don't know if that ever runs (without investigating), would guess would also be a DBS 66. Hopefully someone will be along shortly to confirm ;)


    Thanks, Sam

    First one, would be a test train, possibly the Network Rail New Measurement Train (HST set) https://www.flickr.com/photos/sboot...oEq-fkoVpp-fg39gb-rJuY7a-r4XkNd-eToS2k-bT3JbZ
    Second one, DBS 66?

    You already asked about that train in your first post! ;)

    It's one (of many) trans-Pennine freight paths which are not
    used/needed these days, I'm afraid.

    Other than the occasional one off wagon moves between Crewe and Leeds,
    the only regular freight workings via Huddersfield at present are
    6E33 Warrington to Doncaster and 6M30 return
    , DB-operated
    wagonload/car trains which run three days a week.

    Don't know, but then again HSTs are never used down to Cleethorpes (they regularly visited on through trains to London until 1992) yet the NMT visited there in July 2013

    NMT has been a bunch on interesting places for HSTS, it has been on the West Highland line.
