180112 Shrivenham 27 October 2003

180112 approaches the site of Shrivenham station with the 11:45 Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads First Great Western service on 27 October 2003. I'm sure regular travelers on this route were not impressed when some HSTs were replaced with these units in 2002, but they needn't have worried as the quality traction was back within a couple of years!
