66032 Compton Beauchamp 30 May 2001

66032 passes Compton Beauchamp on 30 May 2001 with the late running 6B24 15:33 Didcot Power Station to Cardiff Tidal oil empties. Signs of Railtrack wasting money on the right. Obviously signaling needs to be modified or upgraded occasionally, but why replace the whole post complete with new foundations? They haven't even moved it to a new position! Presumably the old one didn't meet some arcane new pointless regulation, although perfectly satisfactory for the job. Unfortunately this kind of stupidity and waste is now rife in Britain.
