46233 Wolvercote 23 May 2015

Coronation Class 4-6-2 46233 Duchess of Sutherland passes Wolvercote on 23 May 2015 with the PMR Tours 1Z53 16:38 Didcot to Manchester Victoria 'The Oxfordshire Express' railtour, which it would take as far as Derby. The line of fresh ballast on the right marks the course of the former down goods loop, which is being reinstated as a new running line. However, whilst the connection with the main line was installed some while ago, along with the short section of track up to the stop plank in the foreground, all work seems to come to a halt for over a year.
