5043 Upper Heyford 8 April 2017

Castle Class 4-6-0 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe crosses the Oxford Canal near Upper Heyford on 8 April 2017 with the Vintage Trains 1Z76 06:55 Solihull to Salisbury 'Moonraker' railtour. Although there is perfect reflection of the loco in the water, the picture is somewhat spoiled by the lineside vegetation obscuring most of the train. However, as I have used just about every possible photographic location between Banbury and Didcot previously, I thought I would try something different for a change.
