The future of the oil refinery at Robeston (Milford Haven) has been in doubt for some time and the once daily service to Westerleigh (near Bristol) has run less frequently, but it was announced this week that a buyer for the refinery has been found and the jobs of several hundred workers are likely to be saved. From a railway perspective it is hoped that the products produced at Robeston will continue to be conveyed by rail. On 30th July 2014 DBS-liveried Class 60 numbered 60020 digs its heels in to the 1 in 93 gradient on the climb to the summit at Stormy (between Port Talbot and Bridgend) while working 6B13, the 05:00 Robeston Sidings to Westerleigh Murco.
