950001 Challow 8 April 2014

After a ten minute sojourn in Challow loop, 950001 prepares to rejoin the mainline at the site of Challow station on 8 April 2014. It is working the 2Q08 08:22 Didcot to Bristol Temple Meads. This is obviously a going away shot, as the view in the other direction was impossibly backlit. Also, I have wanted to take a picture of something on the down relief line at this point, showing the connection with the mainline in the background. Unfortunately, other than resorting to taking pictures of light engines, there is normally no possibility of this, so this proved to be the ideal subject.
