222003 Milton Ernest 16 August 2007

Meridian unit 222003 passes Milton Ernest with the 09:30 Nottingham to St Pancras service on 16 August 2007. Class 222s come in 4, 5, and (as here) 8 coach formations. The train has crossed over the River Great Ouse, which the line repeatedly re-crosses in the Bedford area. The tracks on the right are the freight lines, which take an easier gradient at Sharnbrook a few miles to the north of this location.
