220028 Ashchurch 17 November 2017

A frosty morning at Ashchurch, showing a view that has recently been cleared of trees, revealing the old water tower amid all the new buildings. 220028 heads north on 17 November 2017 with the 1M25 07:00 Cardiff Central to Manchester Piccadilly CrossCountry service. This train didn't get much further, as it was terminated at Bromsgrove, as 66206 working the late running 6M60 01:48 Exeter Riverside to Bescot china clay tanks, had managed to run out fuel climbing the Lickey Incline, and was blocking the line!
