59102 Crofton 20 October 2010

Running over two hours late, and traveling very slowly, 59102 Village of Chantry passes Crofton on 20 October 2010 with the 7A09 07:12 Merehead to Acton Yard Mendip Rail 'jumbo' stone train. Quite what the problem was is not clear, but the train almost came to a stand as it passed out of view around the corner by the canal pumping station. The lengthy train consists of the usual three portions, with the four OAA wagons containing blocks well and truly hidden around the corner.
