180103 Hanborough 24 February 2015

In late 2014 there was a massive tree clearance operation at Hanborough, opening up a new photographic vantage point on the Cotswold Line. Whilst this work merely reinstates the view from the roadbridge towards the station back to what it was like in the early 1980s, the view of southbound trains approaching the station has never been as good as this since I started taking photos in 1978. With the mass of tree stumps indicating just how wooded this view once was, 180103 just manages to dodge the shadows as it approaches Hanborough on 24 February 2015 with the 1P47 12:06 Worcester Foregate Street to Paddington First Great Western service.
