221130 Tackley 17 December 2008

Just the right size gap for a five coach Voyager! On 17 December 2008, 221130 passes the flooded fields near Tackley with the 11:27 Manchester Piccadilly to Bournemouth CrossCountry service. The flooding of the River Cherwell is a regular winter occurrence, with huge areas of water appearing between the river and the Oxford Canal, which shares the valley with the river and the railway. One of the bridges over the canal can be seen in the background of this picture directly above the centre coach.
