Scene from Healing station as dense diesel smoke heralds the progress of 56311 up gradient from Great Coates. 12/7/11

Picking up speed now and approaching Healing station. 12/7/11

This sleepy little station usually sees only passenger trains - it is rumoured that more such metal trains are planned.

Its load is clearly visible as the train heads towards Stallingborough.
