50024 Radley 27 August 1987

A late summer evening at Radley in the days when the station was a quiet backwater, before the huge increase in commuter traffic of the last couple of decades. It is also before a giant radio mast was erected in the foreground, spoiling this view completely! 50024 Vanguard speeds through the deserted station with the 1M42 17:52 Paddington to Wolverhampton service on 27 August 1987. The rapidly fading light called for the use of the then recently introduced Kodachrome 200 Professional film, instead of my usual 35mm choice of Kodachrome 64.
