66414 Denchworth 18 February 2016

66414 runs slowly along the up relief line at Denchworth on 18 February 2016 with the 4L31 09:03 Bristol to Felixstowe North freightliner. It was lucky that it was only travelling slowly, as the 1A11 09:30 Bristol Temple Meads to Paddington HST had just overtaken it, and had only just cleared the frame as I pressed the shutter. Note the extensive embankment clearance on the left for the forthcoming electrification. Admittedly exaggerated by the long lens, but the trackwork on the down relief line looks anything but straight! Note also the huge rust patch that has already appeared on the recently replaced Circourt Bridge in the background.
