50023 Stonesfield 25 January 1986

50023 Howe is pictured passing through typical Cotswold countryside, with flooded fields by the River Evenlode in the middle distance and the village of Stonesfield on the top of the hill. The train is the 1A25 08:05 Hereford to Paddington service on 25 January 1986. Technically not a very good picture, for despite being taken on a Pentax 6x7 rollfilm camera this was on the early version of Fujichrome 400 film, which was very poor with excessive grain. This particular film stock improved out of all recognition during the following decade. Oddly I have never ventured back to this location, but assume that it would be completely useless now due to uncontrolled lineside bush growth.
