runs through the new signals.
With no trains running today test runs
were carried out using light engines. This was the scene as I arrived at
a deserted Barnetby station.
The down slow was signalled so I thought I might be in luck!
A few minutes later 66130 crept past a
now disused Barnetby East signalbox...
... and headed towards Wrawby Junction.
The loco negotiates the pointwork outside
the now disused Wrawby Junction signalbox and takes the line to Brigg.
Some minutes later the aspect of signal
CB8800 on the up slow turned to yellow, hopefully signalling the locos
From the platform and footbridge it is
still possible to see signals in either direction.
66130 approaching from Brigg.
Loco passes through the station....
... and shortly returns on the down goods
which shows a yellow aspect at the junction.
Here the loco takes the Lincoln line.
Assuming all testing was satisfactory
freight trains to and from Immingham were due
to begin operating from 05.00 hrs on 30th December. Passenger trains
would restart on 11th January 2016.

a loaded coal train into Barnetby on the down slow line on 16th January
66545 stands at the signal while 153311
on a Newark Northgate train takes the Lincoln line also on 16th January
