43010 Lyneham 22 May 2017

43010 leads the 1P65 15:14 Hereford to Paddington GWR service past Lyneham on 22 May 2017. With no chance of a conventional picture due to various trackside bushes, I opted for this 'train in the landscape' picture, with the gate as a bold foreground object. After over 30 years of use on the Cotswold Line, the era of HSTs on the route will soon end, to be replaced by Hitachi built Class 800 bi-mode units.
