DR80211 Denchworth 7 September 2015

Network Rail Stoneblower DR80211 passes Denchworth on 7 September 2015, running as the 10:04 Didcot Fuelling Point to Canton Taff Vale Sidings. A conventional picture would be very backlit, so I opted for this going away shot, hoping there would be just enough room to fit this short vehicle in the small gap between the bridge and the signal gantry. There was, just! It is surprising how quickly this relatively slow track machine seemed to be moving when viewed through a wide angle lens. Note the capped electrification pile in the foreground.
