50023 Ufton Nervet 3 March 1990

50023 Howe approaches Ufton Nervet level crossing at speed with the 1F14 10:47 Paddington to Newbury Network SouthEast service on 3 March 1990. Although in earlier years Class 50s had dominated this line on through services to the West Country, by 1990 they only worked the NSE services to Newbury or Westbury. Howe only had a few more months in traffic. After a short spell in the NWXC West of England pool, the loco spent its final days as a DCWA loco, finally being withdrawn on 15 October 1990.
