66001 Tackley 11 July 2013

The very last rays of the setting sun illuminate 66001 as it plods northwards past Tackley on 11 July 2013 with the 6X65 19:43 Didcot to Mossend. A massive train, with the last few wagons just visible behind the bushes in the far distance. As well as a large number of Ford cars and vans, the consist also includes a number of VGA vans and a couple of tanks. Just about the closest thing we have now to the mixed freight trains of the past.
