Virgin at Plymouth

Its been a while scince I posted any railway pictures here so to make amends here is Virgin Trains 221.123 named Henry Hudson.

From Wikipedia:

The Class 221 Super Voyager is a train used by Virgin Trains in the United Kingdom. They were built by Bombardier Transportation for the British train operating company Virgin CrossCountry. They are similar to the Class 220 Voyager units, but they are built with a tilting mechanism to allow faster speeds on curved tracks, and most have five carriages rather than four. They can be distinguished from their Class 220 counterparts by their bogies, which appear far more substantial than the lightweight ones of the 220.

Its only really posted here today because it was the 5000th photo I have uploaded onto my Flickr account where you can see many other of my photos.
