67006 Compton Beauchamp 30 April 2007

Humble duties for a royal locomotive. 67006 Royal Sovereign passes Compton Beauchamp on 30 April 2007 with the 6M33 16:23 Avonmouth to Wembley Enterprise service. The lengths of rail lying in the ballast are bad enough, but note the one lying in the 'four foot' of the down line. I know they can't be moved easily, but leaving lengths of rail this close to 125 mph running lines just shows how little regard Network Rail has for safety.
