55003 Stanton 24 March 2012

Bubbling away nicely in the spring sunshine at Stanton on 24 March 2012. The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's 55003 makes a fine sight as it passes under the B4632 Toddington to Broadway road near Stanton Fields whilst working the 10:30 Toddington to Toddington via Hayles Abbey and Laverton service. As in 2011, trains on the northern section of the line first depart from Toddington station in a southerly direction, before returning and then traversing this newly opened section of the route towards Broadway. Note the continuously welded track at this location.
