An Unusual Double-Headed Freight Train

I travel up and down the Great Eastern Main Line regularly and recently, there seems to have been a greater incidence of freight trains with two locomotives on the front.

I am pretty certain, I’ve seen several trains with two Class 66 diesel locomotives or two Class 90 electric locomotives on the front.

But today from a train at Shenfield I took this rather poor picture.

Is This A Class 90 And A Class 66 Working Together?

It would appear to show a Class 90 and a Class 66 working a freight train together.

Does this happen regularly? I can’t find any other pictures on the web.

I should get my camera out faster in future!
