800001 Pershore 17 April 2021

800001 accelerates away from Pershore station (just out of sight around the corner) on 17 April 2021 with the 1P19 09:58 Great Malvern to Paddington GWR service. This was running 15 minutes late, not through any problem with the train, but because the 1W09 07:50 Paddington to Great Malvern unit was running a staggering 44 minutes late, and would in fact be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill, Of course owing to the restricted capacity of the single track Cotswold Line, 800001 could not proceed past Worcester, until 1W09 had cleared Norton Junction.
