50027 Hinksey 3 March 1984

50027 Lion passes the footpath crossing at the north end of Hinksey Yard on 3 March 1984 with the 1A38 14:15 Paddington to Oxford. It's hard to believe that in the days when the passenger numbers were nothing like what they are today you could be whisked from London to Oxford in the comfort of a uncrowded Mk1 coach and not be crammed into a three car unit.
