Rails to tarmac: groundwork for a new tarmac plant being built on the former DB Cargo yard at Washwood Heath near Birmingham has been progressing, with main line connections being retained at Washwood Heath East and West Junctions. On 13 November 2019, No 66105 stands at the head of 6M05 (the 05.16 Moreton-on-Lugg to Washwood Heath Up Sidings) on line 2, with the grab slowly extracting the contents of the first wagon. No 66155 zips by on the Birmingham to Derby line with Banbury to Mountsorrel empties. The raised section of road in the background is the M6 just south of Spaghetti Junction; the road rising up is the A47 Spine Road.
