180102 Combe (Grintleyhill Bridge) 16 November 2007

180102 passes through the sylvan surroundings between Combe and Grintleyhill Bridge, on the Cotswold Line with the 10:52 Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street First Great Western service on 16 November 2007. This train was running 18 minutes late, which resulted in the 11:25 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington service having to wait at Ascott-under-Wychwood, until this unit cleared the single line section. Luckily it now looks certain that this intolerable bottleneck will be eliminated, with the re-instatement of double track on the 14 mile section between Wolvercote Junction and Ascott-under-Wychwood.
