168002 Claydon (Oxfordshire) 15 April 2008

168002 passes Claydon (near Banbury) with the 08:10 Kidderminster to Marylebone Chiltern Railways service on 15 April 2008. As with most of early April 2008, the day started without a cloud in the sky, and on this day stayed that way well into the afternoon. There was formerly a level crossing at Claydon, but now the lane ends in an access gate for Network Rail to gain access to the track, which was included along with the young ash tree to add some foreground interest to the picture.
