L416 Honeybourne 25 April 1987

L416 (51395, 59505 & 51353) approaches Honeybourne with the 14:28 Oxford to Hereford service on 25 April 1987. At this time there were only five trains in each direction on this line on a Saturday, something the single track railway could easily cope with. However, traffic levels increased over the years to the extent that in 2009 work was started to reinstate the double track at this point, although the scheme is bizarrely leaving sections of single track at either end of the route.
