Causing a queue behind her, 70000 'Britannia' is seen passing through Highbridge Station.

Originally pencilled for Highbridge Loop to allow faster trains to pass, 70000 stopped south of Highbridge Loop to await the road but for some reason was given the forward road instead of the loop, so enevitably caused a rather long tailback behind her. I presume she was then diverted via Weston Super Mare to allow these trains to pass.

Sorry but the light was brilliant under the trees on an overcast day!

NB: In response to the comment below. I was at Highbridge station from 9.30am and up until 70000 Britannia passed, there had NOT been any other north-bound trains.
From the information I was given, 70000 was due to go in the loop from 10.01-10.09 to allow for passing traffic.
If this was not the case, the issue still remains that in light of her stopping south under the bridge, there was an orderly queue formed behind her - whether this was the fault of Britannia remains to be seen - Question is? Does it really matter?
