50023 Culham 22 June 1990

50023 Howe approaches Culham on 22 June 1990 with the 1F52 18:08 Paddington to Oxford Network SouthEast service. Amazingly, this nine coach train was an 'all stations' stopping service, and is here slowing down for the Culham station stop. It also makes a very interesting comparison to the same loco pictured almost exactly a year earlier, on the equivalent train. The principal difference between the two pictures being the former's tatty original NSE livery has now been replaced by the darker blue variant of the revised NSE colour scheme.
