172102 Ashendon Junction 10 August 2012

Chiltern Railway's two car Class 172s were initially largely confined to the London end of their network. One working that did take one a little further north was the 2U05 06:12 Marylebone to Banbury service. 172102 is pictured here on 10 August 2012 approaching the site of Ashendon Junction in the low early morning sunshine.
