166202 Shipton 25 June 1995

Immaculate (well almost!) 166202 speeds through Shipton on 25 June 1995 with the 15:20 Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill Network SouthEast service. Note the new rails lying on the ballast, ready to replace the vintage bullhead track on the down line. This viewpoint is not always possible, as occasionally the lorries from the neighbuoring flour mill are parked on the road on the right. On this occasion they were on the opposite side of the road, and their presence is only felt by the reflections in the train's windows.
