66845 Kemble Wick 23 January 2011

66845 passes Kemble Wick on 23 January 2011 with the diverted 6O55 13:20 Llanwern to Dollands Moor steel train. Despite the fact that the lighting was abysmal, I ventured out for this picture, as the sight of any freight train on the Gloucester to Swindon line is noteworthy. The train is diverted via Gloucester for a number of Sundays in the early part of the year due to the closure of the Severn Tunnel. I chose this location as a dull day is required due to the depth of the cutting. Also, it shows the entrance to Kemble Tunnel and the spire of Kemble church in the background.
