57601 Wolvercote 17 July 2021

Superb evening light at Wolvercote on 17 July 2021. 57601 Windsor Castle heads north with the Northern Belle 1Z62 17:10 Winchester to Hull 'Winchester At Leisure' luxury charter. Thankfully the less inspiring plain brown liveried 57316 was on the rear. This was travelling very slowly, as not only was it approaching a temporary 20mph speed restriction, but it was also following right behind the late running 1M66 18:15 Reading to Manchester Piccadilly CrossCountry Voyager, and so was consequently approaching a red signal that protects Wolvercote Junction.
