50004 South Moreton (Didcot East) 1 December 1983

50004 St Vincent passes the site of Moreton Sidings, between South Moreton and Didcot with the 11:15 Paddington to Oxford service on 1 December 1983. Before the obsession with health & safety, and the modern day security worries, it was quite common for enthusiasts to park on the site of the sidings to watch trains go by, just as the man in the white car is doing here. If you tried this now of course you would be evicted by the first Network Rail employee that turned up!
