Rapefield and railway near Huddlesford in Staffordshire
Rapefield and railway near Huddlesford in Staffordshire
Looking north-north-west from Huddlesford Lane.
Two points can be made here. The fast moving Virgin Pendolino train on the West Coast Main Line (Trent Valley), here upgraded to four tracks in 2007, is travelling east towards Tamworth. Virgin has lost the franchise to operate trains on this service from 2020, so these trains will not be seen here for much longer.
First Trenitalia will take over, the new franchise extending into the HS2 development, circa 2026 (maybe). The blue lorry in the image is one of many which are already working on the HS2 preparations along the line to the west (left).
