950001 Claydon (Gloucestershire) 17 February 2015

950001, the unique Network Rail test DMU, built in 1987 utilising a Class 150 bodyshell, is seen here passing Claydon on 17 February 2015. It is running as the 2Z08 09:15 Derby RTC to Plymouth. It has just gone from running exactly to time, to being 15 minutes early. This was achieved by not being held as booked in the loop near Ashchurch station (just visible in the distance).
