57006 Claydon (Gloucestershire) 13 May 2008

57006 passes Claydon with the 6Z72 10:25 Stockton-on-Tees to Cardiff Tidal Advenza Freight scrap train on 13 May 2008. Luckily it was running 30 minutes early, which meant that the sun was still just on the front of the loco. Plenty of may blossom in the picture along with the fresh greens of spring enhance the photo. All too soon the countryside takes on the all over drab green of June - possibly the worst month for photography. Two hours later the balancing working passed the same location heading north.
