66023, Princes Risborough, 6M06, 22nd March 2016
Ever since this train commenced running from around October 2015, there has not been enough daylight to photograph it... This is 6M06, normally the 05:05 loaded train from Acton TC to Oxford Banbury Road aggregates terminal, but for some reason on this day there was a VAR on the schedule to depart Acton at 05:20. In the event, the train departed ten minutes early but was two minutes late by the time 66023 passed through Princes Risborough as the very first rays of the rising sun appeared. This later start meant that the train conflicted rather with 5T12, the 06:02 LHECS from Wembley LMD to Oxford Parkway, which was right behind it. 06:27¼, Tuesday 22nd March 2016.
