50023 Ruscombe 28 May 1983

50023 Howe passes Ruscombe on 28 May 1983 with the 1B74 12:10 Paddington to Paignton service. A dull day has allowed a picture to be taken from the north side of the line, which gives a bit more width on trains on the fast lines. Of course there is now virtually no chance of any kind of decent picture at this location, as the whole view is obstructed by an ugly mass of posts and wires.
