165024 Islip 13 December 2012

You don't always need sunshine for the perfect picture. With a frosty yet dull morning on 13 December 2012, I decided to visit the short cutting at Islip, where I guessed that the lineside bushes would show up well with a good coating of frost. Had the sun been out this would have been impossible, due to the depth of the cutting. 165024 pulls away from Islip station (just beyond the bridge in the background) with the 2T11 11:30 Bicester Town to Oxford Chiltern Railways service.
