31463 Long Marston 27 June 1987

Dramatically dark clouds over Long Marston on 27 June 1987, as 31463 leaves the Army depot with the Southern Electric Group's Waterloo to the West Midlands 'Walsall Concerto' railtour. 31463 was a last minute substitution for 50023, which had failed at Reading. However, its moment of glory didn't last long, being replaced by 50031 at Worcester.
