The former goods yard at Taunton has been significantly redeveloped lately. I remember a large shed latterly used for storing road vehicle parts and a much clearer view of this water tower emblazoned with the text: British Railways Taunton Freight Concentration Depot. [see image 40790]

During severe flooding blocking the line at Cowley Bridge Junction north of Exeter a CrossCountry HST from York lays over on the right in Taunton^s platform 2. Routing from Cheltenham had been via Chepstow with reversal at Severn Tunnel Junction due to a landslip near Westerleigh. The class 150 DMUs are operating shuttle services from Taunton to Bristol and Cardiff.
