This could almost be a 1970s view, with a train of early Mark 2 coaches still in BR corporate livery, and a plain blue Class 85 at the head. The photograph was actually taken on 21st. August 1989. Despite their decline in numbers and the arrival of new Class 90s, 85s could still be seen on a reasonable amount of passenger work at this time.

BR Metro Vick electric loco (originally gas-turbine) E2001, near Westcott, May 1970
