60040 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 3 December 2008

Eagerly awaited by the large crowd of photographers on the footbridge, 60040 The Territorial Army Centenary approaches the site of Ashbury Crossing at Shrivenham on 3 December 2008 whilst working the 6C54 13:13 Oxford Banbury Road to Whatley Mendip Rail stone empties. The branding on the side of the locomotive includes the Army's latest recruiting phrase: 'Army - Be The Best'. This loco has become something of a celebrity, despite the fact that its so-called one off livery is very little different from the standard EWS colour scheme.
