59101 Didcot North Junction 25 April 2017

59101 Village of Whatley slowly pulls away from a signal check, and passes Didcot North Junction on 25 April 2017 with the 6A15 04:06 Whatley Quarry to Appleford Mendip Rail stone train. This was running 100 minutes late, which was possibly an advantage, as it was still cloudy at its booked time. However, the late running has resulted in the sun not being on the front. You can't win! The train had travelled via the Berks & Hants line, rather than its normal route via Swindon. Even so, it was supposed to have come via the west curve (on the right), instead it has most unusually traversed the east curve from Didcot East Junction.
