47130 Stonesfield 10 March 1985

With its previous Stratford allocation indicated by its white roof, 47130 heads an engineers train through the remote countryside between the villages of Stonesfield and Wilcote, on the Cotswold Line on 10 March 1985. It had been engaged in track relaying operations at little further up the line at Fawler. This is on the long single track section between Ascott-under-Wychwood and Wolvercote Junction. Withdrawn almost exactly 3 years after this picture was taken, the loco was finally cut up at MC Metals in Glasgow in October 1990.
