166210 Didcot North Junction 6 May 1994

166210 passes Didcot North Junction on 6 May 1994 with the 1F16 09:48 Paddington to Oxford Network SouthEast service. It has just traversed Didcot East Curve, which allows non-stop trains such as this to avoid Didcot Parkway station. There are some strange goings on in the background. 47145 Merddin Emrys, which had arrived a little earlier with the  6V03 MoD stores from Fenny Compton, can be seen attached to the front of 47307 on a train of cartics. However, it didn't stayed attached for long, and headed off north light engine, leaving 47307 to work the train alone.
