On Tuesday 30th April Freightliner 66534 named “OOCL Express” came down to Hackney Yard at Newton Abbot light engine from Stoke Gifford to collect a rake of empty YKA flatbed rail carrying wagons and take them to Westbury.  OOCL is the acronym of a Hong Kong based shipping company, the Orient Overseas Container Line. The journey down went to plan and it arrived at Hackney Yard right time but getting out with the consist was a different story and with having to wait for a suitable gap in the service trains was the best part of two hours late when passing Dawlish. Fortunately at that time it was able to miss out all the pathing stops at Dawlish Warren, Riverside yard Exeter and Tiverton loop and it was only 10 minutes late in reaching its destination of Westbury Down Yard.
