The second running of the new timber flow from Hellifield to Chirk took place on 29th August 2022, and was more complicated than the first. Colas Class 56 No. 56113 had to engage in a complex shunting manoeuvre to remove a defective wagon from the middle of the consist prior to departure. The wagon can be seen in the left hand siding as the driver reverses back into the right hand siding to reattach to the remaining timber carriers, resulting in a 55 minute delay to departure.
