47639 Shipton 18 April 1987

47639 Industry Year 1986 approaches Shipton on 18 April 1987 with the diverted 1M88 06:33 Poole to Manchester Piccadilly service. Its normal route via Banbury was closed for engineering works, and this brought the welcome sight of a procession of Class 47 hauled trains to the Cotswold Line. It was just a pity that the weather wasn't a bit better!
