70803 Lyneham 9 February 2015

Bringing the welcome opportunity to photograph a freight train on the Cotswold Line, 70803 passes Lyneham on 9 February 2015 with the 6M50 07:55 Westbury to Bescot engineers train. This train was held at Didcot for some considerable time, and was 92 minutes late approaching Oxford. However, by completely missing out its normal layover in Hinksey Yard, it converted that mega late running into being 47 minutes early when it actually passed through Oxford station! Plenty of mole activity, but the other residents of the foreground field were elsewhere on this occasion!
