DR76901, 97308, DR76921, DR76919, DR76923 & DR76922 Daylesford 3 September 2021

Brunel returns to the line that he helped to engineer in the 1850s! An impressive cavalcade of Network Rail overhead line electrification vehicles with DR76901 Brunel leading passes Daylesford on the Cotswold Line on 3 September 2021. The train, which also includes: 97308, DR76921, DR76919, DR76923 Gavin Roberts & DR76922, was running as the 6X81 15:26 Long Marston to Kings Norton On Track Plant Depot. This was running 10 minutes early, and it suddenly occurred to me that the 1W29 14:50 Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street GWR IET was due from the opposite direction. It certainly was a close run thing, as I found out when I turned round!
