Reconstruction of a Railway
In 1971, most of the railway line between Oxford  and Worcester was singled, severely reducing the operational capacity of the  line, and often creating knock-on effects if a train was late.   In 2008, it was  finally agreed to redouble parts of the line, most notably the  Moreton-in-the-Marsh to Evesham section, and over the next three years, this  work was undertaking, finally finishing in August 2011.   This collection  records the process at two locations: Evesham and Offenham (I had initially  intended to do Honeybourne as well, but never actually managed this; something I  regret somewhat).  

As a result of further improvements to Evesham Station in November 2018, I've decided to expand the remit of this collection to cover further engineering works in the area going forward.
