56081 Claydon (Gloucestershire) 31 July 2015

56081 passes Claydon (Gloucestershire) on 31 July 2015 with the 6Z35 11:41 Chaddesden to Cardiff Tidal loaded scrap. Luckily this was running pretty much to time, as any later and the sun would no longer be glancing across the front end, and that shadow that has just reached the rail would start to become a real problem! Bredon Hill dominates the background, but the growth of the lineside trees means that from this angle Ashchurch station, a mile distant, is now hidden from view.
