Looking rather rundown since its closure!
Many thanks indeed Guy.
Two pics attached, one taken in March 2017 when 08799 was stored at the end of a siding in Westbury's 'new sidings' on the down side, and the second grabbed from the window of a passing train on the morning of June 7th, just a couple of hours before it was loaded for removal to Kent.
Guy V Many thanks Guy.
My eye was caught by a recent item, from Colin Burges, regarding Dunball Wharf.
In 2008 we were travelling North on the M5 when we saw what appeared to be a ship's bridge and accommodation standing behind a hedge, We thought this might be a left-over carnival cart (dinosaurs and camels are not unknown in this area!) but a bit of map work pointed strongly to Dunball Wharf and an unloading dredger.
We returned the next week and took this shot from the West bank of the Parrett, of "Arco Dart" unloading between tides. We've never seen another ship from the motorway and are not even sure how often the wharf is used for this traffic.
With kind regards, Brian
Thank you Brian, We're not really into 'ships' - however it is very interesting to know the wharf is still in use and we like your comments re dinosaurs.
