53852, 59741 & 53871 Gloucester 26 August 1984

TS508 (53852, 59741 & 53871) approaches Gloucester station on 26 August 1984 with the 13:15 Cheltenham Spa to Bristol Temple Meads service. Virtually all of Tyseley's Class 116 sets around this time had a non Class 116 trailer, in this case a Class 115 vehicle has been used. Other sets had Class 101 or 127 vehicles. Behind the train, cars and an ambulance can bee seen waiting at the Horton Road level crossing. Despite the misty weather, this picture gives a good view of the lines curving away from Horton Road Junction (which the unit is crossing) towards Barnwood Junction. Note the oils barrels in Horton Road depot, on the left.
