180114 Uffington 9 September 2006

180114 speeds past the site of Uffington loops on 9 September 2006 with the 11:29 Cheltenham to Paddington First Great Western service. Although this a public footpath crossing, it always seems rather strange taking pictures at this location, standing on the ballast which at any other location would be blatant trespass! Nature is gradually reclaiming the site of the former freight loops (replaced by the four track section further east), with brambles leading the advance and colonising the ballast.
