166206 Evesham 29 March 1996

Token exchange at Evesham 29 March 1996. The driver of 166206 pauses to collect the single line token, prior to heading westwards with the 1F26 10:48 Paddington to Hereford service. A brief burst of sunshine has illuminated a scene that has since changed considerably. The waste ground in the foreground is now the car park for an industrial estate, while Hampton Parks Farm on the right is now largely obscured by trees, and yet more new buildings. The signal box survives, but unfortunately the lower quadrant semaphore signal has not.
