47098 Charfield 13 March 1989

A scene that is now totally unrepeatable. 47098 passes Charfield on 13 March 1989 with the lengthy 6M29 14:00 Taunton to Bescot Speedlink, at least half of which on this occasion appears to be departmental vehicles. A rail blue Class 47 on a mixed freight is now sadly a thing of the past, and even this location where Little Bristol Lane parallels the line for some distance is no longer as open as this. My main concern here was whether a car would drive down the road and block off the shot at the critical moment!
