50029 Marshfield 27 October 1984

Although there were a few booked workings over the years, Class 50s were never particularly common in South Wales. On 27 October 1984, 50029 Renown passes Marshfield with the 1A34 09:10 Cardiff Central to Paddington service. The first coach appears to have been paint bombed in the recent past. With a bank of cloud in the background, and the fog only just clearing, the autumn sun is just breaking through. Just as well after a long drive from Oxfordshire.
