800317 Thrupp (Gloucestershire) 17 December 2018

800317 negotiates the reverse curves at Thrupp (near Stroud) on 17 December 2018 with the 1L58 12:36 Cheltenham Spa to Paddington GWR service. Although I obviously knew this would be a Class 800, I thought it was worth a picture, as I was passing by the location, and the sun was out. Naturally as soon as I had walked up the hillside, the sun went in! Stanton's Bridge, on the partially restored Thames & Severn Canal, can be seen on the right.
