XR559 and G542 turned up just after 12. Not sure if there's another loco keeping them company, but I didn't see one in the yard.

We have a train but don't know which locos, too wet to go out again.

Big grain ship just arrived in port too.

Looked like G542 and XR559. I'll try and nip down and confirm that later.

Edit... confirmed. A rake of VHAF’s and one lonely NG.

Thanks Y115 that presumably explains why it will take over a week to load.

BigShunter's mum took this video of the five loco lashup at Heywood. He said the driver tooted and waved at the crazy woman filming again. Laughing

Thanks Y 115, RR and BS's Mum.
I hope that you all realise that your combined efforts in relation to Portland operations provide pretty much the only 'real time on the ground data' on RP from anywhere.
Please keep it up when you can.

Thanks for that.

Well, Y115 does a really good job of the photography side of things, and BS's mum has managed to get the video sorted. I just try and fill in any gaps.

We're lucky that there's not a huge amount of traffic...
