47773 Wolvercote 9 February 2014

47773 (D1755) passes a totally flooded Port Meadow at Wolvercote on 9 February 2014 with the Vintage Trains 1Z53 15:50 Oxford to Banbury. This was a part of the 'Chiltern Champion Part 2' railtour from Marylebone to Marylebone (via Quainton Road, Claydon Junction, Oxford and Banbury). It would then work back to Solihull as the second part of the 'Chiltern Champion Part 1' tour! The highlight of this tour was of course D1015 Western Champion, which can be seen on the rear here. However, this picture is not only in better light than my Western shots, but also shows the work in progress on the reinstatement of the Oxford to Wolvercote down relief line.
