168 215, Bicester South Junction, 5T01, 1st August 2016
A few minutes after sunrise and 168 215 starts to descend the gradient from Bicester South Junction to Gavray Junction, around the new chord. It is working 5T01, the 05:12 ECS from Aylesbury via reversal at Princes Risborough to Bicester Village, where it forms 2T01, 06:05 to Oxford Parkway. It was running ten minutes early but was held at the next signal for 1Y04 to pass the other way as that train runs "bang road" from Oxford Parkway to Bicester Village. 05:44, Monday 1st August 2016.
