180102 Didcot North Junction 25 April 2017

The sun breaks through the clouds at Didcot North Junction on 25 April 2017, just as 180102 passes by with the 1D13 06:20 Paddington to Oxford GWR service. There is almost a sense of deja vu with these units in the Thames Valley, as in late 2017 they are due to move to Grand Central. It is almost a decade since First Great Western got rid of them for the first time, before welcoming them back in 2012!
