66135 South Moreton 27 April 2011

Not quite the result I was hoping for, but I suppose it can be regarded as a perfectly timed passing shot. As I was approaching South Moreton on 27 April 2011, I could see 66135 stopped at signals with the 6Z16 Hothfield to Moreton-on-Lugg stone empties. Quickly stopping the car, and sprinting to the bridge with the now essential stepladder, I could see the train starting to move as soon as I looked over the parapet. What I couldn't see was the 1V89 12:19 Newcastle to Reading CrossCountry service bearing down from behind! 66135 didn't get very far, as it was stopped yet again at the next set of signals!
