50030 Kingham 22 January 1989

In the final few months of Class 50 operations on the Cotswold Line, 50030 Repulse leaves Kingham station on 22 January 1989 with the 1B31 13:45 Paddington to Hereford service. This is in the very last of the weak afternoon sunshine, but this is the first northbound train of the day on a Sunday at this time! Although this is one of the few pictures that I took of a revised Network SouthEast liveried Class 50 on the Cotswold Line, I still prefer the picture I took of the same locomotive at the same location in 1987.
