37401 & 37405 Banbury 22 August 2015

37401 Mary Queen of Scots & 37405 speed past Banbury North Signal Box on 22 August 2015 with the Railway Magazine sponsored 1Z37 06:17 Chester to Bournemouth 'Bournemouth Flyer' railtour, run in connection with the Bournemouth Air Festival. It had originally been planned to use the Scottish 37 Group's 37025 Inverness TMD on this tour, but unfortunately paperwork issues prevented this. 57307 Lady Penelope is on the rear of the train. The impressive GWR signal box will soon be made redundant, with the introduction of the Banbury area resignalling programme, which will remove this final pocket of semaphore signal operation on the route.
