165006 Launton 2 September 2010

In crisp late afternoon light, 165006 speeds past Launton with the 1U45 16:03 Marylebone to Banbury Chiltern Railways service on 2 September 2010. Chiltern Railways have almost got a new variation of their blue and white colour scheme. Their Class 165 & 168 units are generally in immaculate condition (not easy with so much white paintwork), but virtually every one has an uncleaned cab roof, which slightly spoils the overall effect.
