Honeybourne West Loop Junction 14 October 1979

Honeybourne West Loop Junction, looking towards Stratford-upon-Avon on 14 October 1979. The actual junction is just in front of the bridge in the background, which carries the Worcester to Oxford 'Cotswold Line' over the route. After over three years out of use, all trackwork and structures are still in place. Surprisingly all the semaphore signals are also still in situ. At least some of these collectors items would probably go missing nowadays! Incidentally, the missing distant arm on the right hand bracket had already been removed (presumably officially!) by the mid 1970s.
