60054 Bremell Sidings (Site of) 14 September 2016

An empty oil train passing a (now no longer rail connected) fuel depot. 60054 passes Purton Oil Depot, at what was formerly known as Bremell Sidings, with the diverted 6B33 13:00 Theale to Robeston Murco oil empties on 14 September 2016. This was diverted via the Swindon to Gloucester Line due to the closure of the Severn Tunnel. It had left Theale 100 minutes late, but had managed to recover over half of that, and surprisingly managed to avoid getting held up any more at Swindon, which was experiencing problems due to a line blockage on the route to Bristol.
