43007 Milton 16 November 1988

43007 leads the 1C52 14:30 Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads service past Milton on 16 November 1988. This was late in the afternoon, and still the fog hadn't really cleared in the background, although it was any improvement on the middle of the day, when Didcot Power Station could hardly be seen through the murk. While this view could have been replicated until recently (albeit with increasing background vegetation), 43007 would not have been seen here in later years, as it moved to Cross Country, and then East Midlands duties.
