47195 South Moreton (Didcot East) 1 December 1983

47195 passes South Moreton (Didcot East) on 1 December 1983 with the 6M23 10:12 Fawley to Longport LPG tanks. The large area of waste ground behind the train is the site of Moreton Sidings, which handled vast amounts of freight traffic during the Second World War. After decades of dereliction, it was again brought back into railway use in the new Millennium, to act as a work site for the badly mismanaged Great Western Mainline electfrication programme.
