50023 Hanborough 22 August 1981

My first picture of a loco in 'Large Logo' livery, and because during 1981 I had not been following railway events too closely, it was quite a surprise when this came into view! 50023 Howe passes through Hanborough station on 22 August 1981 with the 1C40 15:00 Paddington to Hereford service. Howe was the first Class 50 to wear this livery, being painted the previous September.
