DB Cargo 66090 hauls a loaded tank train from Lindsey Oil Refinery to Kingsbury Oil Sidings, through Tamworth high level. Behind the loco is a class 60 which had failed, meaning the freight was running over 2 hours late, due to the class 66 having to go and rescue it.
Tamworth station is an interesting one, as it has a high and low level, with two platforms on each. On the low level the West Coast Main Line runs with 4 tracks, 2 fast 2 slow, the high level has the Birmingham - Derby Cross country line. Both levels see decent amounts of freight.

I am not sure sorry, it was a few years ago now and I don't tend to make not of locomotive numbers. However it is a DB Cargo class 60.

It's a long time ago, I know. But it's very strange to see DB-logo in the UK anyway.

A lot of the EWS livery carrying locos have that little sticker, they are gradually painting them Red though.
