47523 Bourton 22 December 1989

47523 passes Bourton on 22 December 1989 with the 1A40 09:06 Swansea to Paddington service. Not only was this train unusual in being Class 47 hauled amid a sea of HSTs services, but also it was one of the few trains that didn't call at Swindon, though which it had passed non-stop a few moments before this picture was taken.
