Picture of the week- 19th March 2012

An interesting overview of the urban landscape of Newport (Gwent). While the ideal location for the photograph would have been the car park visible to the right this was sadly not accessible. Instead I found a perch high up with the pigeons in another city car park with a view looking east. While the River Gwent is obscured by trees the rolling landscape of rooftops still creates an interesting backdrop.
The train headed by 66127 is, I believe, a service from Exeter Riverside to Bescot conveying China Clay- it is about to head left onto the marches line towards Hereford, though quite how it would come to be travelling east through South Wales I am not entirely sure!
The photograph was taken on 17th March 2012.
