DR75406 Grove 31 October 2014

Friday often sees track machines moving around the network in readiness for weekend engineering work. Such was the case on 31 October 2014, when the Great Western Mainline saw three such moves within a little over an hour. One of these, the 09:33 Severn Tunnel Junction Sidings to Didcot Fuelling Point, is pictured passing milepost 61, near Grove. Unlike the other two workings, which were unsurprisingly routed along the relief lines, Colas Rail Matisa B14UE tamper DR75406 Eric Machell has been allowed to run along the up main.
