Didcot Railway Centre - heavy lifting
Didcot Railway Centre - heavy lifting, taken 5 years ago
No. 70000 - Britannia - is having some attention to the bogie in the workshops and the front has been lifted to extract the bogie and then supported on jacks. This is serious engineering.

The photograph was taken without trespassing through the door of the workshop. I really couldn't resist this although trains are not my main interest.
