70000 Denchworth (Circourt Bridge) 25 July 1993

7MT 4-6-2 70000 Britannia finds a lucky patch of sunshine as it passes Circourt Bridge, Denchworth on 25 July 1993 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z41 08:10 Taunton to Worcester Shrub Hill 'Cotswold Venturer' railtour. The tour had worked up to Didcot behind 47573 an hour previously and was now retracing its steps, before heading to Worcester via the 'Golden Valley' route. Note the recently relaid but not yet commissioned down relief line. The up relief line which has also now been reinstated at this point had not yet been started at this time.
