Chiltern comes to Oxford
In October 2015 Chiltern Railways introduced a service between Oxford and London Marylebone. From Oxford the route follows the line to Bicester Village (formerly Bicester Town) via the new Oxford Parkway station near Water Eaton, then by a new stretch of track called the Bicester Chord to join Chiltern's main line east of Bicester North, thence to London via High Wycombe. This service is presumably competing with Great Western's services to London Paddington. Chiltern also links to Bicester Shopping Village from both Bicester stations. See Martin Bodman's SP5922 : Bicester Chord and my later SP5922 : The Bicester Chord is progressing. Another view at Oxford station is SP5006 : Chiltern comes to Oxford.
