165001 Water Eaton (Banbury Road) 2 October 2011

165001 (or 65001 if you look carefully) passes the Banbury Road stone terminal at Water Eaton on 2 October 2011 with the 2L09 11:33 Bicester Town to Oxford Chiltern Railways service. Compare this with an identical view taken almost exactly a year earlier when the service was still operated by First Great Western. The A34 Oxford to Bicester dual carriageway runs parallel with the line here, but is now completely hidden by bushes.
