59202 Grove 14 May 2018

Now running over an hour late, after being held at a signal in the distance, 59202 Alan Meddows Taylor MD, Mendip Rail Limited slowly gets under way again at Grove on 14 May 2018 with the diverted 7A09 06:26 Merehead Quarry to Acton Mendip Rail 'jumbo' stone train. I had already photographed this train near Circourt Bridge, Denchworth, and was surprised to be able to get to this location in plenty of time for this second picture, bearing in mind the lengthy walk back along the footpath to my car in Denchworth village.
