@crewearpley40
Another great link. Thanks for that. If anything it bears out the recent request for a 61xx tank loco as several were based in Oxford. Note that 'Kimbolted' is only loosely based in that area and not actually in Oxford itself.

@themadhippy
The Varsity Line is the main reason for me being able to model the odd ER train but, more importantly, the section between Bedford - Bletchley - Oxford as most of my travelling/spotting was done along that part.

Thanks for the links, the Fairford branch website was how I originally go into doing the Fairford branch and over the years I've been doing Claywell have actually contributed to the site with additional info.  You can see my attempt at Bampton (Oxon) station on my main layout thread and I can run a timetabled service using the original timetables I have for the branch.
