800304 Hinksey 23 July 2018

At little more than walking speed, 800304 passes Hinksey Yard on 23 July 2018 with the 1P36 15:22 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington GWR service. This had managed to traverse the Cotswold Line exactly on time (no mean achievement in 2018!), but had then become involved in the massive delays caused by problems with the newly laid track at Oxford. On the left are the wagons of the 4L40 16:42 Morris Cowley to Purfleet BMW Mini car carriers, while just visible in the background is the 6Z71 15:00 Swindon European Metal Recycling to Aldwarke scrap train.
