66751 Tackley 23 June 2020

A temporary footbridge was opened at the north end of Tackley station in April 2020, replacing a former foot crossing at the south end of the station. This seems a complete waste of money, as Network Rail have claimed for years that they wanted to replace the foot crossing with a subway, and still claim that is the plan. Why not just do that, and keep the foot crossing until then? Now walkers who want to cross the line have to walk the full length of both platforms! 66751 Inspiration Delivered - Hitachi Rail Europe passes by on 23 June 2020 with the 6X01 1005 Doncaster Up Decoy to Eastleigh East Yard long welded rails. This was running an hour early.
