L408 Hinksey 8 February 1986

L408 (51343, 59495 & 51385) passes Hinksey Yard on 8 February 1986 with the 2A36 12:49 Paddington to Oxford service. This panoramic view of the north end of the yard gives a good view of the fan of sidings. In the 1980s this location was unobstructed by trees, which would now cause a February view such as this to be largely in shade. Also, the vegetation in the background has now grown considerably, mostly blocking this view of Hinksey Lake and New Hinksey church.
