166206 Bishops Itchington 16 July 2001

166206 finds a brief patch of sunshine as it rounds the curve near Bishops Itchington on 16 July 2001 with the 14:04 Stratford-upon-Avon to Paddington Thames Trains service. Although there are now plans to reopen a route to Stratford via Honeybourne, a decade after this picture was taken there is now no longer a direct service between the tourist centres of Stratford and Oxford.
