Direct Rail Services 68018 'Vigilant' and 68001 'Evolution' head east away from Dorchester South following reversal with the 15:51 Winfrith Sidings to Crewe Coal Sidings (DRS) on 20th April 2023. The wagons convey low-level nuclear waste from the decommissioned Atomic Energy Establishment at Winfrith to the Low Level Waste Repository Store near the village of Drigg on the Cumbrian Coast. AEE Winfrith near Wool in Dorset was decommissioned in 2021. Limited additional workings of this nature were expected and indeed did operate over the coming months.
