66186 Culham 11 June 2015

66186 passes Culham on 11 June 2015 with the 6X65 20:28 Didcot to Mossend freight, possibly the nearest thing on the national network today to the old fashioned Speedlink mixed freight. If only all Speedlink trains were this long, then perhaps they might still be running today! In addition to the large number of cars in the consist, there are also several wagons of steel rods, with a motley selection of miscellaneous wagon types bringing up the rear. Unfortunately this was running 11 minutes late, and that was enough to ensure that the light had virtually gone, with just a hint of very weak sun illuminating the train, and Appleford church in the background.
