50023 South Moreton (Didcot East) 24 October 1989

50023 Howe passes South Moreton (Didcot East) on 24 October 1989 with the 1F45 11:00 Oxford to Paddington Network SouthEast service. It is no wonder that trains today are so overcrowded, as today's equivalent of this train is a three coach Turbo unit. In 1989, when far less people travelled by rail, eleven coaches were provided!
