165039 Wormleighton Crossing 22 April 2009

165039 approaches Wormleighton Crossing on 22 April 2009 with the 11:52 Birmingham Snow Hill to Marylebone Chiltern Trains service. This view illustrates one of the numerous ways Network Rail finds to waste money. Note the duplication of the 93 milepost. Presumably the old one was getting a little tatty, but this is easily remedied by a readily available cheap miracle cure that comes in tins - called paint! Although I suppose nowadays nobody would be allowed to do such a simple job so near the running lines, although of course that's exactly how the replacement got there!
