37010 Littlemore 15 May 1997

37010 reverses into Littlemore Oil Depot (just visible through the trees on the right) with the 6Z23 oil train from Thameshaven on 15 May 1997. This was the first train to run to Littlemore for a number of years. I had seen the train a little earlier in stunning light at Culham, but by the time it negotiated the Morris Cowley Branch the sun had disappeared. Oil traffic ceased a few years later, and the site has now been redeveloped.
