50049 & 50031 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 7 August 2005

50049 Defiance & 50031 Hood approach the site of Ashbury Crossing, near Shrivenham on the Great Western mainline with a football special taking Chelsea fans to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff for FA Community Shield match against Arsenal on 7 August 2005. The locos still carry their Scottie Dog logos from their unbelievable Scottish railtour earlier in the year. I was lucky with the sun with this one, as the cloud was following the train, albeit not at the same speed!
