66234 Wolvercote Junction 13 August 2003

66234 slowly approaches Wolvercote Junction on 13 August 2003 with a loaded ballast train for the Cotswold Line. This was fairly unusual in itself, but what was more noteworthy was that just a few yards further on the train stopped, and then spent 15 minutes with the rear of the train completely blocking the junction! This was because it was following the Cotswold Line's evening 'all stations' DMU, which had to get to Ascott-under-Wychwood before this train could proceed. This was annoying, as the 6M28 18:23 Didcot to Bescot departmental working was waiting one signal behind, and by the time that had a clear road, the light had gone!
