950001 Littlemore 6 February 2017

950001 traverses the extremely overgrown Morris Cowley branch on 6 February 2017 with the 2Q08 08:26 Oxford Down Carriage Sidings to Oxford Down Carriage Sidings (via Leamington Spa and Didcot) Network Rail test train. It is pictured here passing Littlemore. Knowing that this location was hemmed in with bushes, I was glad that the forecast was for a cloudy morning. Unbelievably, the sun started to come out as I arrived, making this location nearly impossible for photography. I needn't have worried however, as it was back to miserably dull conditions when it actually arrived!
