47096 Hinksey 12 February 1985

An easy job for 47096 on the afternoon of 12 February 1985, as it trips a single VDA wagon from Morris Cowley to Hinksey. It has just passed underneath the Oxford Southern Bypass and is approaching the southern end of Hinksey Yard. Judging by the footprints in the snow, it seems like there were still numerous railwaymen regularly walking the track in the mid 1980s, either that or there have been some recent trespassers on the line!
