1001 Radley 9 December 2000

Terrible photographic conditions with extreme backlighting, but Thumper Units are extremely rare in the Oxford area, so the picture definitely had to be taken! With Didcot Power Station prominent in the background, 1001 passes through Radley station with the Hastings Diesels Ltd Hastings to Oxford 'Oxford Rover' railtour on 9 December 2000. The acute lighting in this picture clearly shows up the standard width coaches added in the centre of the formation.
