Class 66/5 No. 66509 brings the Whatley Quarry to Churchyard Sidings aggregates round the 75mph curve over Hungerford High St, threading its way between the tall buildings fronting the old coaching road, some of which had to be demolished to make way for the extension of the Berks & Hants route in the mid 19th Century.
