37025 Banbury 11 March 2016

37025 Inverness TMD approaches Banbury on 11 March 2016 with the 6Z90 12:00 (14:36 actual) Crewe Basford Hall to Didcot, conveying Kirow crane DRK 81624, sandwiched between a KFA support wagon and a YWA flat wagon. Unfortunately this was well over two hours late. Had it passed at the correct time, the lighting would have been perfect. By the time it appeared the spring sunshine had long gone, and it was getting very dark. However, the prospect of a picture of a preserved Class 37 working a freight on the mainline was certainly not to be missed.
