D5613 Heyford 31 July 2013

D5613 (31190) passes Heyford in miserable conditions on 31 July 2013 with the 6Z31 08:16 Eastleigh to Washwood Heath wagon transfer move. Despite the awful weather (at least it had stopped raining!), I wasn't going to miss the chance of getting a picture of some proper vintage traction on the mainline. With just three wagons, the train easily fits in this somewhat restricted viewpoint. It is hard to believe now that this spot wasn't always as overgrown as this. In fact, twenty five years earlier there was an unobstructed view across the fields to the nearby village of Rousham.
