B583 Kingham 6 July 1984

B583 (51097, 59428 & 51069) approaches Kingham on 6 July 1984 with the 2A87 16:45 Hereford to Oxford service. It is passing between the abutments of the former Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway. As can be guessed from this picture, these made excellent photographic vantage points, until tree growth, and excessive health and safety precautions made them inaccessible.
