47839 Didcot North Junction 31 July 1999

47839 passes Didcot North Junction on 31 July 1999 with the 1O38 09:10 Edinburgh to Bournemouth Virgin CrossCountry service. A commonplace picture at the time, with passengers still having three years in which to enjoy comfortable quiet Mk2 coaches, before the complete take over by noisy cramped Voyager units.
