L575 Kingham 28 April 1987

L575 (51088, 59419 & 51060) accelerates away from Kingham station on 28 April 1987 with the 2B60 16:40 Reading to Moreton-in-Marsh 'all stations' service. It is passing the abutments of the bridge that once carried the former Banbury to Cheltenham line over the Oxford to Worcester route. Although used by some freight, the bridge was little used by passenger trains, with all services with the exception of the daily 'Port to Ports Express' calling at Kingham station (seen here in the background), and accessing the Banbury to Cheltenham line by two chord lines.
