66156 Wantage Road 15 January 2013

A scene soon to pass into history. Both the train and the cloud of steam rising in the background have only a few months left, when pictured here on 15 January 2013. 66156 approaches Wantage Road with the 4D10 12:20 Didcot Power Station to Avonmouth coal empties. The huge plume of steam is of course emanating from Didcot A coal fired Power Station, which is due to close in 2013, leaving the gas fired Didcot B to carry on generating.
