68010 Charlton-on-Otmoor 5 May 2016

68010 passes Charlton-on-Otmoor on 5 May 2016 with the 1T54 18:18 Marylebone to Oxford Parkway Chiltern Railways service. Most unusually this was running 10 minutes late, which was a little annoying, as the sun was gradually disappearing into a bank of high cloud. However, the light held out just long enough to produce a decent picture. This new vantage point is from a bridge giving access via a new concrete road to Holt Farm (just out of sight to the left). Unfortunately though this view is presumably only going to be transitory, as young trees having been planted all along the fence. The hedge visible just above the coaches marks the course of the old road, while the wooded slopes of Graven Hill can be seen in the background.
