57005 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 8 August 2006

57005 Freightliner Excellence approaches the site of Ashbury Crossing at Shrivenham on 8 August 2006 with the 4O51 10:02 Wentloog to Southampton freightliner. Although this train appears to be lightly loaded, this is in fact quite a good load for this service! Within a few months Class 57s would be replaced on this train by the ubiquitous 66s.
