47146 Shrivenham 28 June 1995

The sun glints off the recently named 47146 Loughborough Grammar School as it passes the remains of Shrivenham station on 28 June 1995 with the 6M14 15:57 Newport Alexandra Dock Junction to Wembley Connectrail mixed freight. Although obviously very backlit, midsummer does allow pictures to be taken from the north side of the line at certain locations on the Swindon to Didcot line. At least it did in 1995, before the lineside growth became so much of a problem!
