43009 Chalford 13 May 2016

43009 passes through the jungle that is the 'Golden Valley' line (Green Valley at this time of year!). The train is the 1L50 10:36 Cheltenham Spa to Paddington GWR service, and is pictured passing Chalford on 13 May 2016. It's not just the lineside vegetation that is nearly touching the train, but on the down line the ballast is almost completely covered in greenery!
