Old Cotswold branch lines

Unusually, I got the hell out of the office today and spent it following the route of the old disused Witney-Fairford GWR branch line. Written it up here in the hope that a few of you chaps will enjoy it:

Very nice, it's a lovely part of the world. Some of those old lines must have been beautiful in the age of steam.
