220021 Hinksey 9 January 2010

Snow lays thickly on the ground and provides a 'load' for the Network Rail spoil wagons in the foreground, as 220021 passes Hinksey Yard on 9 January 2010 with the 1O30 09:27 Manchester Piccadilly to Bournemouth CrossCountry service. The footbridge in the background always used to be a popular photographic spot, but the nearby trees are now so tall that a patch of shade covers the tracks at this time of year, as can be clearly seen here.
