During the reconstruction of Northampton's railway station in 2014, I decided to take a trip there on the 24th June to see how things were progressing and if there was any traffic coming through that would be worth photographing.
As it turned out it was well worth the time and energy consumed that afternoon.
In addition to the usual Class 350 EMU's, a number of Class 66's and Freightliner Class 70017, I was lucky to photograph a couple of Class 67 diesel locomotives; Royal Train locomotive Class 67006 'Royal Sovereign', and, Class 67026 'Diamond Jubilee', coupled together and running light.
A good 'cop' for me and a pleasant afternoon's spotting.
