Stuart's Railway Photography

56311 powers through Hinksey on the 15th of February 2013 with 6Z91 Calvert - Didcot Power Station, all seems perfect with this picture but it was so close to disaster with 4M66 Southampton - Birch Coppice approaching on the relief line from the south about to wipe the shot out, with the northbound service already entering the loop behind us it seemed the gallery here were doomed with no sight of the grid, then the unmistakeable scream of the 56 could be heard as it passed through Oxford station, thankfully the grid was flying and with seconds to spare the shot was in the bag, superb!
