When I was leaving Bristol Parkway station on Saturday morning I noticed a large Hitachi factory. I also noticed some overhead wires around there.

What is the factory's purpose and why such a short length of wires?

A MAJOR landmark towards the electrification of the rail line between London and Bristol was reached with the completion of the shell of depot in Stoke Gifford where the trains will be serviced.

Probably the only overhead wires you'll see in the area for some time. The depot at Swansea looks even more out of place.
