The Oliver Cromwell

Here is Britannia class locomotive 70013 “Oliver Cromwell”, at speed, pulling the Cotswold Venturer service on the North Cotswolds Line from London Paddington to Worcester via Oxford – taken from a farm bridge between Bruen Crossing and Kingham in West Oxfordshire station this morning – the weather was rather drab (cold, wet and a little blowy), but it was worth it!

This is the same service that I managed to see a few months back, albeit pulled by a different locomotive – The Royal Scot.
