37175 Whitehill 1 November 2018

37175 passes Whitehill (between Combe and Finstock) on 1 November 2018 with the 1Z23 09:37 Bristol High Level Siding to Tyseley Network Rail test train. 37099 Merl Evans 1947-2016 is bringing up the rear. This was running 15 minutes early, which is not bad considering it left Bristol 85 minutes late! This is the regular monthly visit of the test train to the Cotswold Line, but on this occasion the previous day's southbound working was cancelled, and a last minute alternative path via Banbury was used instead.
