158844 Compton Beauchamp 21 May 2001

An unusual visitor to the Great Western Mainline on 21 May 2001. Central Trains 158844 heads east past Compton Beauchamp with the late running 09:03 Bristol Temple Meads to Oxford First Great Western service. These trains were normally worked by FGW's Class 165s, but occasionally Central Trains Class 158s were hired in, as here. Thanks to Simon Coles for the information.
