31463 Broad Marston 27 June 1987

Somebody is obviously enjoying themselves as 31463 very slowly rounds the curve at Broad Marston with the Southern Electric Group's Waterloo to the West Midlands 'Walsall Concerto' railtour on 27 June 1987. The tour had just visited Long Marston Army Depot. 31463 had earlier in the day replaced 50023, which had failed at Reading. Although the sun is not quite out here, it certainly bright in comparison to the extremley dark skies in the direction of Long Marston.
