70020 Cholsey 8 July 2014

Not long after sunrise, and just a few minutes after the sun finally appeared from behind a large bank of dark clouds, 70020 passes Cholsey on 8 July 2014 with the 4O22 01:47 Trafford Park to Southampton freightliner. I had been intending to do this shot for some time, but with the demolition of three of Didcot Power Station's cooling towers less than three weeks away, there was now a degree of urgency! Luckily the forecast of a little early sunshine was correct, although I did travel through some really dense fog en-route.
