5043 Adlestrop 19 October 2013

Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe approaches the site of Adlestrop station with the Vintage Trains 1Z54 15:26 Oxford to Tyseley 'Cotswold Explorer' railtour on 19 October 2013. Amazingly, this is the first time I have used this location for nearly three decades. Despite appearances, the train would have been clear of shadows, had the sun decided to come out, but the amount of tree growth has been phenomenal since my last picture was taken here in 1984.
