172103 Ardley 25 June 2012

A conveniently placed pile of redundant track panels forms an ideal photographic foreground for 172103 as it passes the site of Ardley station on 25 June 2012 with the 1H19 08:00 Banbury to Marylebone Chiltern Railways service. The Met Office had managed to get the forecast spot on for once, with full sun early on, followed by cloud building up during the morning. Just look at that dark mass rolling in from the north west.
