50026 Hinksey 14 June 1983

It seems unthinkable now, but with so many Class 50 hauled trains in the Oxford area in the 1980s, I often got fed up with the conventional pictures, and tried some unusual angles instead. So here is a head on picture of 50026 Indomitable passing Hinksey Yard on 14 June 1983 with the 1A45 07:33 Oxford to Paddington service.
