58034 Bletchingdon 17 August 1988

58034 Bassetlaw passes Bletchingdon on 17 August 1988 with the 7V06 13:54 Mantle Lane to Didcot Power Station MGR. Not much sign of the forthcoming foreign invasion here, as a train load of British mined coal is hauled south by a British built loco, while in the domestic coal yard on the left (on the site of Bletchingdon station), all the vehicles are British built, and presumably the various grades of coal in the foreground are also from this country.
