50030 Kingham 8 May 1987

50030 Repulse pulls away from Kingham station on 8 May 1987 with the 1B47 17:00 Paddington to Hereford service. This was during the final week of normal weekday loco hauled trains over the Cotswold Line, although subsequent years did bring diverted cross country services and Sunday trains. The massive increase in passenger use at Kingham had yet to happen when this picture was taken, and the small car park (since considerably extended) contains only a few cars, one of which is mine.
