168001 Launton 7 March 2011

168001 accelerates away from Bicester North station and passes Launton on 7 March 2011 with the 1H34 11:12 Birmingham Snow Hill to Marylebone Chiltern Railways service. This makes an interesting comparison with the other two front end designs of Class 168s, seen on subsequent trains, firstly 168108, and then 168216. Strange that there is so much visual variation within one class, and yet Class 165 and 166 units look virtually the same!
