70803 unusually working a coal train, the 4V30 1434 Gloucester New Yard to Portbury seen here about to pass through Filton abbeywood on 22-12-14. Normally a 66 loco would work this but the 66 wasn't available and so the 70 initially ran light to Gloucester; worked the train to Avonmmouth for filling; then to Aberthaw power station to unload followed by a trip to Gloucester...... Then down to Portbury for filling which is when the train was photographed..
