D1015 Bapton 14 October 2009

What has got to be the most unusual freight working of the year occurred on 14 October 2009, when preserved D1015 Western Champion worked the 6Z52 15:55 Quidhampton to Tavistock Junction freight, conveying fifteen calcium carbonate tanks for storage at Burngullow. Running slightly late due to an unplanned run round at Salisbury, this historic train is pictured passing Bapton, in the Wylye Valley. The quarry at Quidhampton has closed, rendering the wagons redundant.
