50047 Hinksey 28 July 1983

The rusty tracks in Hinksey Yard on 28 July 1983 signifies that nothing has used any of the lines for some considerable time. 50047 Swiftsure passes by with the 2A36 13:01 Paddington to Oxford service. This was luxury provision for a slow stopping service, and was in fact booked for the more suitable DMU on a Saturday.
