58028 Wolvercote 10 July 1987

With the 'dreaming spires' of Oxford just visible at the rear of the train, 58028 passes Wolvercote with the 6M06 Didcot Power Station to Daw Mill Colliery MGR empties on 10 July 1987. This really dramatic lighting didn't last long of course, as the rain which was falling over the city of Oxford, soon reached this point. This photo was taken from the public footpath crossing on Wolvercote Common, which has subsequently been closed and the whole area is now fenced off.
