43003 Steventon 29 September 2015

43003 Isambard Kingdom Brunel passes signs of impending (probably!) electrification at Steventon 29 September 2015. Not quite the run of the mill GWR HST passenger service, as this is in fact the 5L50 12:37 Cheltenham to Paddington ECS, working to a VSTP (Very Short Term Planning) schedule. Isambard Kingdom Brunel is obviously an apt choice of name for the location, but I wonder what the great man would make of what Network Rail are dong to his superbly engineered line. Presumably he would be impressed by the efficiency and technology of electrification, but like everyone else would be amazed at how badly organised and slow the whole process is!
