44871 & 45407 Run from London Victoria to Yeovil Junction
They are of an embankment slip that occurred towards the end of May 1994
near Crewkerne level crossing. Luckily the running line was not affected and trains could pass at a very reduced speed. However if the old down line had still been in place, then their would have been big problems with the ground gone beneath it, single line working would have been introduced until the embankment was reconstructed. These pics were taken the day after the slip. The embankment was rebuilt with gabions of stone during the next few weeks. CHEERS JOHN C. Many thanks John for these 'privilaged pictures - only possible to members of rail staff.
