Took a few moments to realise what had been going on here between platforms two & three at Cholsey station. Then I noticed the shrubs growing here had gone.
Great Western Main Line Electrification

Network Rail is modernising the Great Western Main Line at the cost of 5 billion pounds. The work started in 2010 and is due to finish in 2017. It will entail the replacement of the ageing rolling stock with new electric trains. The section between Reading & Didcot is due to be used as the test line when it is finished.
