800009 & 800030 Grove 14 March 2020

800009 John Charles & 800030 pass Grove on 14 March 2020 with the 1L66 07:58 Cheltenham Spa to Paddington GWR service. Just visible in the far distance is 56103, which had arrived 29 minutes early with the 5Z20 08:14 Bristol Barton Hill to Wembley DVT move, and would sit there for 35 minutes. This picture is taken from a public footpath crossing, that bizarrely has had the modern palisade fence enclosure removed, and replaced for no obvious reason by a wooden fence.
