50035 Kingham 23 July 1985

A close up view of 50035 Ark Royal, as it waits to leave Kingham station on 23 July 1985 with the 1B56 18:07 Paddington to Hereford 'Cathedrals Express'. This service had only just reacquired the 'Cathedrals Express' name. However, unlike in steam days, it did not carry a headboard, so the only change was some subtle wording in the timetables, and train window stickers!
