59101 Crofton 30 September 2011

With brakes squealing, 59101 Village of Whatley slowly brings its train to a halt as it passes the Crofton Pumping Station on 30 September 2011 with the 7A09 07:12 Merehead to Acton Mendip Rail 'jumbo' stone train. After a brief signal check it resumed its journey towards the capital. Crofton Pumping Station was built to supply water to the Kennet & Avon Canal (hidden by the bushes in the foreground). It houses the oldest working beam engine in the world still in its original engine house.
