90036 Church Lawford 20 April 2009

Unbelievably what would have been an excellent shot of 82101 leading the 09:30 Birmingham New Street to Euston Virgin West Coast service at Church Lawford on 20 April 2009 was completely blocked out by a Pendolino going the other way! Considering the speed they travel at the chances of that happening must be pretty remote. In view of that disaster I decided to wait for the return working, the 1G18 11:43 from Euston, with 90036 leading. As the location at Church Lawford is not as good for west bound trains, I decided to go for a more artistic picture, by framing the train with a convenient tree.
