50033 Ascott-under-Wychwood 9 May 1987

50033 Glorious accelerates away from Ascott-under-Wychwood with the very last up loco-hauled 1A18 07:00 Hereford to Paddington 'Cathedrals Express' service. The date is Saturday 9 May 1987, and HSTs took over the service on the following Monday. The train is gaining speed after coming off the double track section of the Cotswold Line, which finishes by the signal box and level crossing which can just be seen in the background.
