47452 Lyneham 7 May 1987

47452 passes Lyneham on 7 May 1987 with the 1B56 18:07 Paddington to Hereford 'Cathedrals Express'. Note that half the coaches are air-cons, with just a single first class vehicle in the then new InterCity livery. Directly behind that is a Mk1 buffet car. Its been a very long time since this embankment was completely free of bushes, as seen here.
