The train from Bristol to Cleethorpes was "top & tailed" to traverse the Grimsby District Light Railway from Immingham to
Grimsby Marsh Junction and then with a reversal to Cleethorpes. Killingholme oil refinery chimneys in distance.

66096 brings up the rear as the train passes Pyewipe Rd box and curves very sharply towards Great Coates sidings
and Marsh Junction where it will join the main Cleethorpes to Wrawby Jcn line.

Unfortunately due to a point problem here at Marsh Junction Grimsby the train was delayed in what looks like a jungle for 2 hours.
It did eventually reach Cleethorpes but passengers only had about 30 mins before it was due to return to Bristol.

After the points problem had finally been resolved 66096 is seen bringing the train into Cleethorpes station.
