Photographer Colin Price got within seconds of the absolutely perfect composition of a dream shot! On Sunday 8th May 395018 ran a test service between St. Pancras International and Maidstone West in preparation of the limited peak services being introduced in the forthcoming new timetable. (These are workings diverted from existing Rochester or Faversham workings.) As it was approaching Cuxton on the down leg 395009 passed overhead with the 11:44 Dover - St Pancras International service.
