50017 Denchworth 30 August 1987

50017 Royal Oak speeds past Denchworth on 30 August 1987 with the 3A16 15:40 Gloucester to Paddington empty vans. This train was booked for a pair of 50s, and the fact that there was only one loco on the train on this day was a bit of a disappointment at the time. This location is now much more difficult, with a large gantry effectively blocking out this viewpoint, which is why most people now chose to visit the nearby Circourt Bridge, which can just be seen in the distance.
