47449 Denchworth (Circourt Bridge) 8 May 1987

47449 approaches Circourt Bridge, Denchworth with the 6V04 12:30 Calvert to Bath Avon binliner empties on 8 May 1987. The track worker on the left was placing detonators on the up line to warn of a broken rail. This did not go down well with the lady owner of the adjacent Upper Circourt Farm, who claimed the noise was frightening the horses. When told that detonators would be used all day and probably right through the night, she marched off intending to phone someone in authority to get it stopped!
