Downpour at Dagenham Dock
Downpour at Dagenham Dock
A Fenchurch Street bound C2C service, made up of a Class 357 (357203) electric multiple unit, slows in preparation to stop at Dagenham Dock station in very heavy rain. On the left a Freightliner Class 66 (66603) stands in a headshunt beside the sidings of Rail Freight Services who provide facilities for loading rail wagons. On the day of my visit scrap metal was being deliverd by lorries and loaded into bogie box wagons.

Behind the C2C train and fenced off from the rest of the network are the tracks of the HS1 rail route from St.Pancras International to the Channel Tunnel.

Beyond the HS1 tracks are local freight tracks serving Ford and Hanson. A DB Schenker Class 66 (66177) can be seen standing in a loco loop awaiting its next duty.

The bus on the right of the photo is on the EL2 route and is standing in Dagenham Docks Bus Terminus. Behind is the elevated section of the A13.
