50034 & 50033 Denchworth (Circourt Bridge) 22 October 1988

For once a railtour without an intrusive headboard! 50034 Furious & 50033 Glorious pass Circourt Bridge, Denchworth on 22 October 1988 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z26 Birmingham New Street to Liverpool Lime Street 'Pennine Fifties' railtour. Hang on a minute, I hear you saying, if its going from Birmingham to Liverpool what's it doing in Oxfordshire! The tour's devious route first took it south to Bristol, then via Melksham to Swindon, before heading to London and then up the East Coast Mainline to Doncaster. The tour then lived up to its name by crossing the Pennines via Huddersfield in order to get to Liverpool.
