66407 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 8 August 2006

66407 was on hire to Freightliner on 8 August 2006, and is pictured here approaching Ashbury Crossing, near Shrivenham with the 4V60 10:55 Calvert to Bristol Binliner empties. Typical - unusual traction and what happens - the sun goes in whilst still being out fully in the background, which is the photographer's worst nightmare. Thanks heavens for Photoshop layers! Normally I wouldn't bother to resurrect a picture in these conditions to produce this acceptable result, but this is my only picture of a DRS Class 66 on the 'Bins'.
