L406 Finstock 22 August 1985

L406 (51383, 59493 & 51341) slows down for the Finstock stop whilst working the 2B60 16:35 Reading to Moreton-in-Marsh service on 22 August 1985. This was the only down train to call at the station on a weekday at the time, a service pattern that remains much the same today. Although it still just about possible to take pictures from this bridge, you can no longer stand in this exact spot for a nice wide view. During the intervening years those little bushes on the right of the picture have grown considerably, and now the angle of view is much more restricted.
