56021 Wolvercote 4 May 1989

56021 passes Wolvercote on 4 May 1989 with the 6E05 17:39 Didcot Power Station to Barrow Hill MGR empties. Long before the advent of palisade fencing and the growth of lineside vegetation, a convenient footpath crossing on the edge of Port Meadow made an excellent (if somewhat anonymous) location for photographing northbound trains in the evening. However, nowadays the loco has gone, the traffic has gone and the location has gone!
