66100 Claydon (Gloucestershire) 5 April 2007

Ashchurch's station (left) and church (right) can be seen in the distance as 66100 heads southwards down the long straight past Claydon with the 6V16 13:08 Washwood Heath to Portbury coal empties. The date is 5 April 2007 and the blackthorn blossom is still evident in the trackside bushes amid the new green leaves of the hawthorn.
