50004 Hinksey 28 July 1983

How different Hinksey Yard looked in the 1980s! 50004 St Vincent passes the empty yard on 28 July 1983, as it nears journey's end with the 1A38 14:15 Paddington to Oxford service. It's original freight marshalling use a thing of the past, occasional staging of trains, and later storage of redundant stock, was all it was used for until it was turned into a ballast stockpile in the late 1990s.
