50046 Savernake 22 October 1983

50046 Ajax dodges the shadows at Savernake on 22 October 1983 whilst working the 1A01 07:25 Plymouth to Paddington HST replacement service. Note the trackbed of the former Marlborough branch curving away to the right. The Kennet & Avon Canal is in a cutting amid the trees in the background and Bruce Tunnel takes it right underneath where I am standing.
