West Country to Paddington railway, Swindon
West Country to Paddington railway, Swindon
The viewpoint is the same as for this one LinkExternal link but in the opposite direction. Visible in the background is St Mark's church LinkExternal link and its associated vicarage. There are some lengths of rail in the foreground possibly left over from the last repair job. I've often wondered why it doesn't get taken away after the work has been completed; it must be worth something as scrap even if it can't be re-used. On the other hand, maybe it is stock that has been delivered for the next job, in which case why isn't it better protected?
