60007 Compton Beauchamp 25 July 2018

A welcome change of traction for the 6C48 17:11 Appleford to Whatley Quarry Mendip Rail stone empties. 60007 The Spirit of Tom Kendell passes Compton Beauchamp on 25 July 2018. This was running a few minutes late, and so was the diverted 7A97 16:16 Merehead Quarry to Colnbrook stone train coming from the other direction. This could so easily have been a recipe for disaster, with 7A97 completely blocking the view. Luckily however it had just passed when 60007 came into view.
