And so a repeat journey was made to Saxmundham first, where this time I made sure I was on the right platform to get the best view of 57301 and token trailer arrive.
Here is a still from the vid showing Goliath in the platform

Anyway, again following in last weeks tyre tracks I headed down to the same crossing near Leiston, and set up camp again.
|The Sizewell Branch near Leiston - would Goliath make it down?|
The member of train crew who had the job of jumping down and operating the crossings said this was just a run to keep the line open, and he hadn't heard of any increase in traffic on the branch, which is a shame, but we shall see. I did take another vid of Goliath heading off into the distance but unfortunately my memory card decided to run out making that vid is stupidly short, so here is a still from it. Thanks for the alert, Tim, and sorry you couldn't make it there yourself mate.
