43002 Grove 30 November 2017

43002 Sir Kenneth Grange passes Grove on 30 November 2017 with the 1L38 07:59 Swansea to Paddington GWR service. Strange as it seems, this location has actually got marginally more photogenic since the electfrication wires went up! Before the wires were installed, a high voltage electricity line crossed the railway here. It now goes underground, from the post seen on the extreme left of the picture. Whereas the catenary is a necessary eyesore on an electrified railway, the high voltage wires in an otherwise open landscape completely ruined the picture.
