156411 Moreton-in-Marsh 12 December 1992

156411 arrives at Moreton-in-Marsh station on 12 December 1992 with the14:35 Oxford to Great Malvern service. The massive crowd has been attracted by the unusual sight of a steam loco taking water in the down refuge siding. Ivatt Class 2 2-6-0 46521 can be seen in the background, waiting to follow the DMU, once that had reached Evesham. I have mentioned previously that Class 156s were not common on the Cotswold Line, and indeed this is one of the very few pictures I have of one on the line. However, that may be more to do with the fact that I was spending more time photographing further afield in the 1990-2 period, rather than concentrating on my home patch.
