47543 Quedgeley 6 May 1988

A short but very colourful train heads north at Quedgeley on 6 May 1988. 47543 is heading to Gloucester with a rather antiquated looking weedkilling train, which includes a bright red former LSWR 'Ironclad' coach. This was probably the last year that sights like this could be seen, as Hunslet Barclay took over most weedkilling duties the following year, using their fleet of Class 20/9s.
