66185 Whitehill 29 July 2009

66185 passes Whitehill (between Combe and Finstock) with the 6W61 Hinksey to Charlbury ballast train on 29 July 2009, running exactly 45 minutes behind 66149 as booked, on the very similarly loaded 6W60. Luckily by this time the torrential rain had eased off slightly. 66068 is out of sight on the far end of the train. The ballast was required for the realigned section of track to the west of Charlbury, altered in connection with redoubling the line.
