55034 Bicester South Junction 9 April 2017

New railway, very old train! 55034 (121034) traverses the curve between Bicester South Junction and Gavray Junction on 9 April 2017 with the Branch Line Society 1Z34 11:26 Marylebone to Oxford 'Bubble and Squeak Tracker' railtour. This short steeply graded chord, linking the Chiltern Line (seen in the background) with the Oxford to Bicester Line, opened in 2015. The bubble car predates it by over half a century, entering service in 1960.
