    This looks like a great trip; no need for buckets and spades on this one. Made better now the steam ban is lifted plus there are one or two places with interesting gradients.

    Eased back just south of Culham, TSR somewhere along that section? All northbound trains prior to the A4 were quite slow too.

    Put on quite a show for the (strangely) few of us at the top of Sapperton! Took the Hill with ease!

    Number 9 in three locations in fine form

    Suprised to hear there was only a few at Sapperton. I avoided it today because normally every man and his dog goes there.
