165009 Banbury 14 February 1992

Surely if there was going to be a Class 65, it would be a heavy freight locomotive! After just a few months in traffic, 165009 is already masquerading as something it isn't, as indeed did a lot of the 165s in their early years, when missing numbers were commonplace. It is hiding in the gloom of Banbury station on 14 February 1992, waiting to work the 2G46 11:30 service to Marylebone.
