345 Kemble 7 June 2014

On 7 June 2014, 345 (40145) accelerates away from a brief stop at Kemble station (just beyond the bridge in the background) with the Class 40 Preservation Society 1Z40 06:39 Castleton Hopwood to Oxford 'East Lancs Stalwart' railtour. It is just entering the single track section to Swindon. This will shortly have the second track reinstated, which explains the new crossover visible by the side of the fifth coach. Given the fact that this is an identifiable location, and is right next to the main road, with easy parking, I was surprised to be the only photographer present.
