50035 Hinksey 24 October 1989

50035 Ark Royal finds a patch of sunshine amid the clouds, as it passes a completely empty Hinksey Yard on 24 October 1989 with the 1V96 11:18 York to Paddington service. The 50 would have taken over the train at Birmingham New Street, as although the Network SouthEast / InterCity livery combination is slightly different from the norm (although various trains regularly did have this combination), the sight of a NSE Class 50 at York would be noteworthy!
