50023 South Moreton (Didcot East) 13 October 1985

50023 Howe passes South Moreton (Didcot East) on 13 October 1985 with the late running 1F14 12:15 Paddington to Oxford service. In 1985 we all knew that the Class 50s wouldn't last much longer (despite the first one not being withdrawn until over a year later), but we would never have guessed that this location would be lost under a sea of 25kV wires!
