155328 Ascott-under-Wychwood 31 March 1990

A view of the small station at Ascott-under-Wychwood on the Cotswold Line before the former goods yard was fenced off from the main line. 155328 passes through at speed with the 07:48 Hereford to Oxford service on 31 March 1990. A siding formerly ran alongside the side of the platform visible here, and actually survived the track rationalisation of the 1970s. Note the speed restriction signs: 100 mph for the single track to Oxford and 75 mph for the double track section towards Worcester.
