The main subject is the clean, newly dualled line from Oxford to Bletchley. This view is roughly the reverse of SP5922 : Bicester Chord. The bigger picture is that this is part of the EastWest Rail Project to connect East Anglia with central, southern and western England LinkExternal link Thanks to Andrew Bodman for information. He is photographing other parts of the undertaking LinkExternal link

On the left is the site of a new rail link between Bicester Town station and the Chiltern Line. It will allow Chiltern to run services between Marylebone and the new Oxford Parkway station by the A34. In railway circles, I understand, this link is called the Bicester Chord. The view is from a Chiltern Railways service from Birmingham to London.
