59102 Baulking 5 July 2013

A piece of railway infrastructure that has been in place ever since I started railway photography, but is sure to be replaced with the forthcoming Great Western Mainline electrification, is the signal gantry controlling the crossovers at Uffington. This is situated hard up against the road bridge at Baulking. The normal viewpoint is to the side of this, but in view of its imminent demise, I decided to take this wider view of the rusty structure. 59102 Village of Chantry approaches on 5 July 2013 with the 6C48 13:30 Appleford to Westbury Mendip Rail stone empties. Although roughly on time here, it did in fact leave Appleford ridiculously early, and then sat in Challow loop for well over two hours!
