66016 South Moreton 8 May 2008

A filthy 66016 passes South Moreton with the 6Z35 Moreton-on-Lugg to Hothfield stone train on 8 May 2008. This train is easily recognisable as it always seems to run with a couple of ex RMC hoppers in an otherwise uniform rake of EWS wagons. You can understand Network Rail's insistence on erecting high security lineside fencing everywhere (although not yet at this location), when you can see the amount of potentially lethal materials left lying by the side of high speed lines. Just look at the amount of old rail sections lying next to the 125 mph line in this picture!
