Adding a splash of colour instead of the normal GWR green, a Civil Engineer movement 6J02 Gloucester Horton Road to Reading Triangle Sidings on 19th April 2023.
Location is between Bowbridge and Thrupp, to the south-east of Stroud on the Golden Valley line.
Also of interest is the partially restored Thames & Severn Canal, its towpath being an interesting walk from Stroud town centre and railway station. The photo was taken close to the Stroud Brewery & Taproom and I can recommend its viewing area over both railway and canal.
Hopefully of interest. Best wishes, Peter Griffiths.

A few images from the week gone by. Super April sunshine and "Constable" skies have produced some lovely backgrounds to the GWR fleet in the Duchy. 66060 is also seen at St Germans working 6C99. The new leaves on the trees are a particular favourite of mine, a promise of Summer on the way.
17th Dark skies over East Cornwall made a superb canvas for westbound GWR services at Restormel and Treesmill as the light held strong over St Austell Bay.
18th 2P12 drifts down the bank into St Germans the gorse providing a nice foreground detail.
The following day after the Par harbour trip, 5 empty JIA wagons were trailed at Fowey, Carne Point. They certainly dont make as good a picture as the photogenic CDAs winding their way along the causeway.
Cheers for now, Craig.
Please feel free to use and put these on the Cornwall Society website if you think useful.
Kind regards Keith
