66069 Uffington 13 July 2010

66069 passes the site of Uffington station in abysmal light on 13 July 2010 with the 6B33 13:33 Theale to Robeston Murco oil empties, proving that the reappearance of Class 60 haulage on this train the previous week was just a fluke. Obviously I would not bother to go out to photograph this train in such poor light, but as it was running just half an hour before the Royal Scotsman was due from the other direction, I relented! The large building on the right was once the Station Hotel and at the time this picture was taken was up for sale for 465,000. This seems quite a reasonable figure for what is quite a substantial building, but then even the most creative of estate agents could hardly claim it is in a quiet location!
