50030 Didcot North Junction 22 June 1989

50030 Repulse approaches Didcot North Junction in failing light on 22 June 1989 with the 5G58 20:00 Banbury to Old Oak Common ECS. It had earlier worked the 1G58 18:12 Paddington to Banbury Network SouthEast commuter train. Although only really being photographable around the longest day (as here), I don't know why I didn't make more of an effort to photograph this train, especially as in the 1980s there were a lot more locations in the Oxford area that were free of lineside bushes, which would obviously be required for a late evening picture if the sun was out.
