59002 Edington 6 July 2018

Running ten minutes early, 59002 Alan J Day passes Edington on 6 July 2018 with the 7A09 07:16 Merehead Quarry to Action Mendip Rail 'jumbo' stone train. Considering this is early July, when the landscape is still normally predominately green, this picture has got a very brown appearance. This is partly due to the parched nature of the ground due to the prolonged heatwave, but principally because the lineside has been blitzed, and the cut vegetation shredded on site.
