Seen passing through Bredon.   The outward working had traversed the Cotswold Line through Evesham, but working commitments meant that I could not photograph this leg; however, the return leg was timed such that I could intercept it after work at some point between Worcester and Cheltenham, and I chose to photograph it in the cutting just north of Bredon, a location I had used previously (see later in the collection), as there was convenient car parking and I wasn't really dressed for a major hike.

This is a fairly highly recomposed version of the original image, but it says something about the Sony A77 that the resolution of this image is not too far off an unrecomposed A550 image.   A wider version of this image can be found in the "Trains in the Landscape" collection.
