43144 Knighton 1 March 2010

A viewpoint that I had been meaning to use for a number of years and somehow never got around to. 43144 passes Knighton with the 1B20 09:45 Paddington to Swansea First Great Western service on 1 March 2010. The train is just approaching the site of Knighton Crossing, which was replaced in the early 1970s by a road underbridge, which is just out of the picture to the left. The inclusion of the road signs, roads and bushes add foreground interest to the scene, but obviously this picture will only work successfully in winter or early spring.
