165032 Moreton-in-Marsh 29 August 2020

All of the Class 165/1s have traversed the Cotswold Line many times, but very few of the 165/0 fleet have travelled over the line. As the 165/0s are operated by Chiltern Railways this is hardly surprising. 165032 is pictured here in unfamiliar surroundings at Moreton-in-Marsh on 29 August 2020, on what is presumably its first visit to the line. Running 13 minutes early, it is working the 15:15 Aylesbury DMU Depot to Long Marston ECS. Not only is the sight of a Chiltern Railways unit rare here, but it also unusual to see anything pass through the station without stopping.
