50036 Didcot North Junction 22 June 1989

50036 Victorious passes Didcot North Junction on 22 June 1989 with the 1F66 17:48 Paddington to Oxford Network SouthEast service. This train was not booked to call at Didcot Parkway, and was consequently travelling at some speed, as it has just traversed Didcot's east curve. This makes an interesting comparison to the same loco pictured at the same location the following year, on a train that did call at Didcot, and therefore approached from the lines on the right.
