60047 Wolvercote Junction 18 August 1993

Catching the last of the evening light at Wolvercote Junction on 18 August 1993, surprisingly clean 60047 Robert Owen heads north with the 6E81 19:55 Didcot Power Station to Worksop MGR empties. This was the last summer that all of Didcot's coal came from the Midlands, as at the time the new bulk handling terminal was being commissioned at Avonmouth, allowing imported coal to be brought to Didcot via the Great Western Mainline.
