1001 Compton Beauchamp 7 July 2012

1001 is an unusual visitor the Great Western Mainline, as it passes Compton Beauchamp on 7 July 2012 with the Hastings Diesels Ltd 1Z52 16:25 Weston-super-Mare to Hastings 'Channel Two' railtour. I hope the tour participants enjoyed the 'Thumper' haulage more than what must have been a very bleak day by the seaside! This train certainly confused a few steam photographers, who were at this location for Oliver Cromwell, which followed a mere five minutes later with the 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour.
