59104 Shrivenham 4 September 1992

59104 Village of Great Elm passes the remains of Shrivenham station on 4 September 1992 with the 6M24 04:35 Whatley to Wolverton ARC stone train. It will soon be entering the loop at Uffington (since removed), where it will be overtaken by the 08:45 Bristol Temple Meads to Paddington, 07:32 Swansea to Paddington, and 08:10 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington HSTs. Admittedly when this picture was taken 59104 had only been in traffic for less than two years, but even so note how clean it is, particularly the underframe. Obviously loco washing was a high priority at Whatley!
