47033 Ascott-under-Wychwood 12 April 1987

47033 stands 'wrong line' with a ballast train on the down line at Ascott-under-Wychwood on 12 April 1987, during track relaying work on the Cotswold Line. Although at the the time this location was thankfully clear of lineside vegetation, it is still rather a nondescript location. With no prospect of the train moving for hours to come, I waited for an photogenic batch of clouds to drift across and then placed the train low in the frame to make a feature of the sky.
