43003 Compton Beauchamp 18 July 2016

Lengthening shadows at Compton Beauchamp on 18 July 2016, as 43003 Isambard Kingdom Brunel speeds westwards with the 1B79 18:45 Paddington to Swansea GWR service. Note the damaged and taped up window near the rear of the first coach. Just in front of the power car a couple of temporary safety handrails mark the site of one of the electrification mast piles, which once complete will render this viewpoint useless for photography.
