47802 Oaksey 16 April 1991

47802 races through the site of Oaksey Halt (between Kemble and Swindon) with the 08:00 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington service on 16 April 1991. Oaksey Halt was opened on 18 February 1929 and closed on 2 November 1964, having never seen much use due to its isolated location. The line was singled in 1968, with the remaining track slewed to take the centre line through the abandoned platforms. Not only was the old up platform a good vantage point for photography in the morning, but in the afternoon the other platform was also useful.
