47806 Charlbury 8 September 1991

47806 arrives at Charlbury station on Sunday 8 September 1991 with the 1M39 12:03 Paddington to Manchester Piccadilly InterCity service. The nearest car in the then very small car park is my Opel Manta. This was the car that covered a huge mileage during 1991, as I used my recession induced four day week to good effect, by doing lots of railway photography. All kinds of locations were visited, but my abiding memory of 1991 is repeatedly travelling down the A303 to photograph Class 50s on the West of England line.
