Railway line near Calvert 5
Railway line near Calvert 5
This railway line, looking north-east towards Steeple Claydon, comes from Bicester and Oxford behind the camera, and is used only by freight trains, currently one a day, carrying containerised household waste from Bath and Bristol to the landfill site at Calvert. The landfill site is 1.5km to the south and is on a different line, which can just be seen before the portakabin going off to the right.

This track is all that remains of the double tracked Oxford to Bletchley railway that was constructed by the Buckinghamshire Railway Company and which opened on 1 October 1850, see SP6825 : Railway line near Calvert.
