|I didn't expect to still be taking photos around the Sonning area in 2016, much to my delight though there are still no poles let alone overhead wires on this stretch of the GWML... Just a few years behind schedule! And allowing me to fill in some blanks on shots/locations that I wanted to do and hadn't got chance to.
59001 - 7A09 07:12 Merehead Quarry to Acton. Sonning Cutting 4th May ’16.
Heading a few miles east for the return, Ruscombe still has no wires but the poles are evident in the background.
Rather gutted that the train loco got swapped from a ratable 59001 to a very much less than rateable 59203...
