220015 Rousham 18 April 2010

220015 speeds round the curve near Rousham on 18 April 2010 with the 1V82 13:33 Birmingham New Street to Reading CrossCountry service. 1V82 would normally start from Newcastle, but this is a Sunday, so consequently it starts from Birmingham. I particularly like the composition of this picture, with the train leaning into the curve and the rails lying in the ballast adding some foreground interest. Even the tree on the right is positioned in just the right place to aid the composition. Of course I would say this, because its a bloody long walk to get to this spot!
