Our train service was disrupted this morning by an event
usually expected in the Autumn; Leaves on the Line.
Today though it wasn't a gentle spread along the line
but a concentration in two places - trees had fallen down overnight!
Before working the driver
experience train Class 25 D7612 had to put away the dinning train from
the previous evening then collect the main set from Bishops Bridge loop.
On its journey to Staverton the train came across this tree at 4 1/2 mile
post. After clearing this one a second tree was also discovered at Woodville
Water Board crossing but this was passable, just.
