37685 Yarnton 27 September 2010

37685 passes Yarnton in the rain on 27 September 2010 with the Vintage Trains 1Z58 09:30 Plymouth to Solihull 'Up Devonian' railtour. Unfortunately the weather was the complete opposite to when the loco took the coaches south just over a week before. However, as I was virtually passing this spot en-route to Oxford anyway, it was well worth standing in the rain for a few minutes. This location is rather restricted with foliage, but a head on shot helps to disguise the West Coast Rail 'sludge brown' livery. It also seems that I only use this spot in terrible weather, as the last time I was here was on an equally wet day for a picture of 66567. Note that the milepost has been replaced since 2008!
