802020 Uffington 22 July 2020

Making a welcome change from the rest of the depressingly drab dark green fleet, 'To All Our Key Workers - The Nation Says Thank You' liveried 802020 passes Uffington on 22 July 2020 with the 1L72 10:58 Cheltenham Spa to Paddington GWR service. The special livery includes messages in 116 languages. The 'Diolch Yn Fawr' message under the driver's side window is Welsh for 'Thank You Very Much'. Although it resulted in the picture being taken with the lens almost wide open, a shutter speed of 1/4000sec was used here, as it is a fairly wide and close up view, and the unit was travelling at close to 125mph.
