DR79263 & DR79273 Finstock 6 March 2017

Harsco RGH20C rail grinders DR79263 & DR79273 pass through Finstock station on 6 March 2017, running as the 6U03 10:40 Worcester to Reading Triangle Sidings. This was running 20 minutes early, as the HST it should have passed somewhere on the double track section between Ascott-under-Wychwood and Charlbury, was in fact still the other side of Oxford, running 15 minutes late. Some excellent quick thinking by the signaller allowed the track machine to keep running, and to clear Wolvercote Junction with a couple of minutes to spare before the HST needed to access the single line.
