230010 Moreton-in-Marsh 29 April 2021

The final Class 230 destined for Transport for Wales (230010) operated various mileage accumulation runs over the Cotswold Line in April 2021. On 29 April I went to Moreton-in-Marsh with the hope that I would have better luck than my visit to Long Marston the previous week, when the test run was cancelled. I thought I was going to be out of luck again, but this time the 5Q23 09:44 Long Marston to Moreton-in-Marsh did actually run, albeit 10 minutes late. It is seen here passing slowly through the station, after being held at the signal. It would shortly return as the 5Q24 10:32 Moreton-in-Marsh to Stourbridge Junction Goods Loop.
