A few photos taken last week when Summer briefly returned. First, DB Sschenker class 55 No 66086 at Didcot Parkway, still with the old EWS “Three Beasties” logo on the cabside.
Freighliner’s class 66 no 66524 heads an up intermodal through the slow line platforms at Didcot Parkwau. The overhead knitting is already in place here, ready for Great Western’s new electric services.
An unidentified Great Western HST set in the new green livery speed through Goring Gap. There were complaints made when the catenery went up because they were thought too visually obtrusive. Were there similar complaints when Brunel built the original railway in the 1839s?
Again unidentified (you think I can read numbers at that distance?), a Cross Country Voyager crosses the Thames midway between Goring and Pangbourne..
