Flood-hit rail line latest

This is The West Country: A train tries to makes its way through the floods A train tries to makes its way through the floods

NETWORK Rail says engineers will examine the railway line between Bridgwater and Taunton as soon as the water level drops far enough.

Until then, it will be impossible to assess the damage the water has had on the tracks and surrounding ground.

Passengers are continuing to be shuttled between the two towns by bus, with a limited service travelling to Taunton from Bridgwater via Bath.

the voice of common sense says...

Is it too much to expect a local paper to publish a photo of a train that operates in this area rather than an electrified northern region train, or has the line between taunton and Bridgwater been upgraded while it has been closed due to the floods?

I know I should get out more, but, this is just sloppy journalism by a sloppy generation.

Isn't the replacement bus going the long way(taunton to Bridgwater via Bath) or is this another example of people writing about things they know nothing about?
