165103 Hinksey 25 June 1993

165103 passes the completely deserted Hinksey Yard on 25 June 1993, as it approaches journey's end with the 1F50 15:48 Paddington to Oxford Network SouthEast service. This was two years after the end of Speedlink, and before the yard became a storage location for redundant stock, and then latterly a ballast stockpile, so for a while its future looked bleak.
