68009 Charlton-on-Otmoor 15 August 2016

68009 Titan passes Charlton-on-Otmoor on 15 August 2016 with the 1T54 18:18 Marylebone to Oxford Parkway Chiltern Railways service. This was running a few minutes late, as some problem was requiring all trains to use the down line, therefore this train had to wait for the 1Y74 19:09 Oxford Parkway to Marylebone DMU to reach Bicester Depot West Junction. This newly upgraded line is fully bi-directionally signalled, so this is no great problem. Note the poppies already colonising the spoil heap in the foreground.
