D1015 Banbury 17 August 2002

Running on just one engine, after an earlier turbo failure, D1015 Western Champion approaches Banbury in failing light on 17 August 2002 with the Past Time Rail 1Z52 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington 'Western Noon' railtour. Until 1966 there was a line diverging to the right to the rear of the train. This was the Great Central Railway's 'Banbury Branch', which connected with their main line at Culworth Junction.
