165024 Charlton-on-Otmoor 23 November 2012

There are very few locations between Bicester and Oxford that are not hemmed in with trees, and therefore plagued by shadows during the winter months. However, near Charlton-on-Otmoor there is a brief gap in the bushes next to a farm crossing. 165024 passes this spot on 23 November 2012 with the 2L11 11:30 Bicester Town to Oxford Chiltern Railways service. This picture is taken (with permission) from a field that contains the farm's pet ram, goat (and out of the picture) miniature pig.
