180112 Moreton-in-Marsh 23 November 2006

With only a year of operations left, before First Great Western hands the whole class back to the leasing company in favour of more refurbished thirty year old HSTs, Class 180 Adelante unit 180112 accelerates away from Moreton-in-Marsh station on 23 November 2006 with the 11:34 Hereford to Paddington service. Apart from the fact that the signal box has been fitted with replacement windows, the whole signalling installation here is still very definitely steam age! Despite the fact that by this date most of the leaves had fallen, there is still plenty of autumn colour on show here, particularly the small beech tree on the left.
