50026 Hinksey 21 June 1986

This may look like a run of the mill Oxford to Paddington working passing Hinksey Yard in the mid 1980s. However, it has in fact come a little further than that, as it is the 1V81 12:55 Llandudno to Paddington, which 50026 Indomitable had taken over at Birmingham New Street. I was a little surprised to see a 50 on this, as it was usually a Class 47 turn. The date is 21 June 1986.
