43141 Wolvercote 25 March 2017

43141 Cardiff Panel Signal Box 1966-2016 passes Wolvercote in superb evening light on 25 March 2017 with the 1W06 16:15 Paddington to Hereford GWR service. Network Rail has rightly been criticised for its unbelievably slow progress with the Great Western Mainline electfrication scheme. However, that is nothing compared with their reinstatement of the down relief line between Oxford North Junction and Wolvercote. That has actually gone into reverse, with the track that was installed in 2016, having been taken up!
