66097 Tackley 11 July 2013

66097 passes Tackley on 11 July 2013 with the 6M28 18:16 Hinksey to Bescot departmental working. I was surprised to find that even after not having visited this spot for a couple of years, there has not been any increase in lineside vegetation, and it is still an excellent spot to photograph northbound trains on a summer evening. As can be seen from the glancing shadows on the front end of the loco, this is just about the first train where the sun is on the front.
