45129 Badgeworth 16 February 1985

45129 passes Badgeworth with the 1V74 08:29 Leeds to Cardiff Central service on 16 February 1985. It had snowed several days before and luckily there was still some snow on the ground at the weekend and the sun decided to shine as well! The snow is particularly apparent on the Cotswold Hills in the background. Note that this picture was taken before the new road bridge was constructed just beyond the signal in the background. Also in recent years vegetation has started to spread up the embankment on the south side of the line.
