60044 Gatcombe 21 July 2018

60044 Dowlow runs alongside the muddy banks of the River Severn at Gatcombe on 21 July 2018 with the 6B13 05:00 Robeston to Westerleigh Murco oil tanks. The footpath crossing is an odd survivor, as not only does it only lead down onto the foreshore, but the small fence in the ballast dividing the path from the running line, while perfectly safe, seems very casual by Network Rail's current paranoid standards. Note the substantial stone built base for the disused PW hut, which is still there, underneath the vegetation.
