Anyone expecting snow? The rare sight of a Network Rail snowplough stabled in Taunton has bizarrely occurred. Both former snowploughs based at Bristol Barton Hill have now been relocated to Taunton. One is located on the south head shunt at Fairwater Yard (adjacent to Silk Mills Road) while the other is located in the new sidings behind Taunton Station (adjacent to Platform 1). These striking pieces of equipment have never been used to clear snow so spend the majority of their time positioned in sidings awaiting the day when 10ft snow drifts arrive in the South West.
