8022 Silchester 5 July 1987

Class 438 4-TC 8022 catches the fading evening light, as it is pushed round the curve at Silchester by 33116 on 5 July 1987. The train is the 2V43 18:08 Portsmouth Harbour to Reading Network SouthEast service. Note the plush orange curtains. The ensemble would shortly return with the 2O17 20:00 Reading to Portsmouth Harbour working.
