50037 Hinksey 14 June 1983

50037 Illustrious passes Hinksey Yard on 14 June 1983 with the 1A59 07:38 Oxford to Paddington service. This would shortly be providing the passengers from the diminutive stations at Radley, Culham and Appleford with the luxury of a proper loco hauled train to the capital, instead of their normal diet of DMUs.
