185146 Maud's Bridge 1 January 2007

185146 approaches Maud's Bridge (between Stainforth and Scunthorpe) with the 10:52 Manchester Airport to Cleethorpes Trans Pennine Express service on 1 January 2007. I started off the new year with a new class of DMU, 185s not being particularly common in my native Oxfordshire! New Year's Day had started sunny, but by this time thick black clouds were rolling in from the west, which gives a superb background to this picture. Note the tower of St. Nicholas church, Thorne on the extreme right.
