47348 Charlbury 29 July 1995

Running twenty minutes late, 47348 St Christopher's Railway Home passes through Charlbury station on 29 July 1995 with the Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z33 07:18 Paddington to Long Marston 'Honey Monster' railtour. Class 47s were of course no stranger to this line in previous years, but not the no-heat 47/3 sub-class. In the 1990s the once relatively clear embankment on the right was becoming very overgrown, resulting in this fairly head on view. Out of sight on the rear of the train are 33057 Seagull & 33019 Griffon.
