67025 & 67017 Shrivenham (Ashbury Crossing) 3 December 2008

67025 Western Star & 67017 Arrow approach the site of Ashbury Crossing at Shrivenham with the UK Railtours 1Z27 08:44 Huntingdon to Bristol Temple Meads charter on 3 December 2008. The two InterCity liveried Mk 2s at the front of the train slightly spoil the effect, but then so does the choice of traction! Although a hackneyed location in recent years, this was the start of a couple of hours of hectic activity, and as all the interesting trains were coming from the same direction, for once I decided to stay in the one spot.
