60031 Challow 6 December 2008

60031 ABP Connect passes Challow with the 6B33 12:12 Theale to Margam Murco oil empties on 6 December 2008. The loco seems to have been in a minor shunting accident resulting in a damaged front end just above the buffer beam. The outer pairs of lines visible here are the freight relief lines that were relaid in the early 1990s and extend from a few hundred yards behind my position here at Challow to the site of Wantage Road station.
