50043 Denchworth (Circourt Bridge) 5 December 1981

50043 Eagle passes Circourt Bridge, Denchworth on 5 December 1981 with the 1A93 08:50 Cheltenham to Paddington service. A very dull day, which does at least allow this viewpoint from the north side of the line. The variety of traction along this stretch of line was actually less in the 1980s than now, with very little daytime freight. However, there was of course the very big bonus of a few unfreburbished Class 50s amid all the HSTs!
