70013, Wolvercote, 1Z50, 10th February 2018
On a cold, wet and windy morning, BR Standard "Britannia" Class 4-6-2 No. 70013 "Oliver Cromwell" has just departed from the Down Passenger Loop at Oxford North Junction and is now approaching a red signal at Wolvercote Junction at 10:49½ on Saturday 10th February 2018, some ten minutes late. The train is 1Z50, the 08:08 "The Cotswold Venturer" from Paddington to Worcester and return. It had arrived at Oxford North Junction a minute or so early but was held up due to a late running train from Worcester holding up the service train to Worcester, and then having to wait to follow a northbound CrossCountry working... The deficit had been reduced to three minutes by Ascott-under-Wychwood and an on time departure from Moreton-in-Marsh. Digital Image No. IGMP33279.
