67012 Hanborough 13 May 2015

67012 A Shropshire Lad approaches Hanborough on 13 May 2015 with the 1Q15 08:52 Derby RTC to Derby RTC (via Oxford) Network Rail test train. 67029 Royal Diamond is bringing up the rear. At nearly midday, the lighting is of course awful, with the harsh overhead sun throwing all the wheels and underframe into shadow. However, I wanted a picture of this reasonably regular working passing through this recently cleared cutting. As can be seen from the tree stumps, this location hasn't been possible for decades, but it won't take long for the vegetation to start growing again!
