166201 Chilson 9 August 2016

Superb early morning light at Chilson on 9 August 2016, as 166201 heads eastwards with the 2Z24 06:56 Worcester Foregate Street to Oxford GWR service. The line was closed at Hinksey, in order that a large culvert could be installed under the track, which was also being raised. This was in an effort to combat the ever present flooding problem to the south of Oxford.
