57301 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 18 November 2019

57301 Goliath approaches the site of Ashbury Crossing, near Shrivenham, on 18 November 2019 with the 5Q78 10:19 Ilford EMU Depot to Newport Docks (Sims Group), conveying 315858 & 315814 to their appointment with the scrapman. Note the variation in livery, with the leading unit formerly belonging to Transport for London, and the rear one to their sister company, London Overground. At less than forty years old, these EMUs surely have many years of life left in them, but they are being replaced my new Class 345 & 710 trains.
