800002 Wolvercote 3 January 2020

My first railway picture of 2020 shows 800002 passing Wolvercote on 3 January with the 1P24 09:54 Great Malvern to Paddington GWR service. Although 800002 entered service in 2016, it was another three years before it finally carried fare paying passengers, as both it and pioneer 800001 were used exclusively by GWR for training purposes. During that time it carried the much more attractive plain white colour scheme, but uniquely, one driving vehicle sported an unusual red graphic design. Unfortunately whenever I saw it the red vehicle was always at the back!
