47040 Evenlode 16 February 1980

47040 passes Evenlode in a brief, but very welcome patch of winter sunshine, amid the clouds on 16 February 1980, as it heads towards Oxford with the 2A91 14:25 Worcester Shrub Hill to Didcot service. This train only worked as far as Oxford on a weekday, and was extended to Didcot on a Saturday. Not a bad picture considering it was taken with a Praktica PLC2 with 50mm Pentacon lens. Good results could be obtained with even basic 35mm SLR cameras in those far off days, provided of course you used Kodachrome 64 film!
