50049 West Drayton 6 November 1986

50049 Defiance passes West Drayton on 6 November 1986 with the 1F07 07:07 Newbury to Paddington Network SouthEast service. Eleven comfortable Mk 1 coaches seems an appropriate train for the early morning London bound commuters. It's just a pity that the nearest comparable train today, when there are vastly increased passenger numbers, is a three car DMU!
