66149 Charlbury 29 July 2009

Its not very often you get to photograph two trains this close together on the main line. In the pouring rain on 29 July 2009, with Brunel's grade II listed station building prominent in the foreground, 66149 with the 6W60 ballast train from Hinksey stands awaiting further instructions, with 66185 on the 6W61 from Hinksey right behind it. They would shortly move off to drop ballast on the section of realigned track between Charlbury and Shorthampton.
