E6036 Southam 9 July 2011

Making its debut in BR blue livery, E6036 (73129) passes Southam with the 11:15 Winchcombe to Cheltenham Racecourse service on 9 July 2011. 73129 has been an active part of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's diesel fleet for many years, although looking increasing shabby in its faded Network South East livery. Unfortunately on this occasion the sunny spell ended just a minute before the locomotive came into view, so the loco's new paint job isn't shown to full advantage.
