66 Freight reversal
Monday, 15th May, 2000

Whilst working the 6M97 12.42 Wakefield Euro to Wembley yard 66150 had halted at Woolmer Green. Because of Gauge restrictions in the Welwyn North and Hadley Wood tunnels the train was unable to proceed any further. So after waiting for a clear line the train was reversed (at about 5-10mph) all the way to Langley Junction just over 2 miles. The train was running 87 minutes late by the time it left Langley Junction.
