Impatient Crossing Keeper

Bath's 'Black 8' No. 48660 is captured here powering through Catcott Burtle in the late summer of 1963 with a perishables train made up mainly ex LNER stock.

Note the photographer's Austin A35 Countryman parked on the concrete bridge which crosses over the remains of the old Glastonbury Canal.

The crossing keeper it would appear was rather impatient  to put the signal back at danger even though the rear of the train had yet to pass it.
