158862 Bottesford 6 September 2012

Ancient and modern at Bottesford on 6 September 2012. 158862 passes the charming Victorian crossing keeper's cottage as it heads east with the 1L08 09:52 Liverpool Lime Street to Norwich East Midlands Trains service. The green signal here is worrying, as it means the barriers for the level crossing just around the corner are down, and the 2S12 11:15 Skegness to Nottingham (worked by 156498 & 153383) is bearing down from behind me, threatening to block out the picture!
