Didcot Parkway

A scene of considerable activity at Didcot station on Saturday 30 October 2010. From left to right there are FGW Turbostars at platforms 5 and 4; a Cross Country service has just departed east from platform 3 towards Reading with a service to Bournemouth, while a FGW HST is arriving from the west at platform 2. The increased activity is due to closure of the line towards Oxford for engineering work and the need for rail replacement buses, two of which can be seen in the car park on the right.
