165033 Brill Tunnel 24 May 2010

165033 emerges from Brill Tunnel on 24 May 2010 with the 12:52 Birmingham Snow Hill to Marylebone Chiltern Railways service. Notice how short the tunnel is, although this has admittedly been slightly foreshortened by the use of a very long lens. The long lens and the extreme heat have also given the rails a curiously wobbly appearance. This view would have not have been possible until recently. Whole swathes of trees have been cleared from both sides of the cutting.
