47821 Evesham 16 May 1993

47821 Royal Worcester arrives at Evesham station in the pouring rain on 16 May 1993 with the 1A86 19:05 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington InterCity service. The was advertised as the final loco hauled train on the Cotswold Line, hence the polished silver buffers. The previous down working had even carried an appropriate 'Cathedrals Express' headboard. The car park nature reserve on the left has since been improved, and there is no longer any place for cow parsley or buttercups! Not that you would be able to tell now, as a row of trees now partially blocks this view.
