The Bakers Dozen


As far as I can gather this is the first time a Thumper has been into Paddington.

When I got there I set up on the platform and realised with all the new trackside equipment getting a clear shot would be hard so I decided to use a long lens.

Once in the station initially it was impossible to get a good photo as there was an 800 IET (one of the new trains) blocking the view but fortunately left a few minutes before 1001 did, sadly anyone travelling on the train wouldn't of had chase to get decent shots in that station
