50036 Coates 30 April 1983

50036 Victorious passes Coates on 30 April 1983 with the 1A01 08:02 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington service. Just visible in the background is the roadside sign for the Tunnel House pub, which is situated down a rough track that runs alongside the belt of trees. The Thames & Severn Canal is in a deep cutting in the trees, and the remote pub once served the 'leggers', who walked the canal boats through the 3,817 yard long Sapperton Tunnel.
