66746 Wolvercote 12 July 2016

66746 passes Wolvercote in atrocious light on 12 July 2016 with the 5Z81 18:05 Oxford to Oxford Up Carriage Sidings Royal Scotsman ECS, having just been to Banbury to reverse! 66743 can just be seen on the rear of the train. This was in connection with the Belmond Royal Scotsman mammoth eight day 'Grand Tour of Great Britain' luxury charter, which had earlier in the day worked the 1Z79 04:35 Gloucester to Bath (via Newton Abbot), and the 1Z81 13:30 Bath to Oxford (via Southampton). Admittedly the weather was grim, but I was surprised to be the only photographer present to record this very unusual working.
