166206 Banbury 17 August 2002

166206 approaches Banbury on 17 August 2002, while an unidentified 3 car and 2 car Class 165/0 combination heads in the opposite direction. 166206 is working the 17:37 Stratford-upon-Avon to Paddington Thames Trains service, whilst the other train is the 17:10 Marylebone to Birmingham Snow Hill Chiltern Railways service. Although hardly a very picturesque viewpoint, this location does have the advantage of being clear of obstructions for a late evening shot, that is until the shadow of the wall by the stone terminal on the left starts creeping across.
