With the naval test reactor facility at Dounrey been decomissisioned, there are likely to be numerous military flask movements even when the fuel has gone.

With them been test and evaluation reactors a large part of the technology is still highly classified even if they are from older designs some parties will still be more than interested in getting thier hands on.

So not all the fuel flasks will have fuel in but broken down irradiated parts of test reactors which will be under strict lock and key

Today the Bridgwater Crewe flask was worked by a 37 and a 68. As far as I am aware this is the first time a class 68 has been on this working. It was topped and tailed on the way down and the return working double headed with the 37 leading on the return leg to Crewe.

I'll have to buy a 68 now!

Why all the fuss? Double heading, barrier wagons etc. Back in the 60's at Southminster they just tacked a flask wagon on the back of the daily sand train!

First time I took note of one of these trains I thought
they were transporting some sort of air conditioning
equipment so why two locos ?  I later found out
that they were coming from Hunterston.

Slightly off topic but to say beauty is in the eye of the beholder! But they are noisey beasts and can pull a mountain - albeit a ballast mountain.
