47653 18 6 89 1

Sunday 18th June 1989 saw diversions from both the Spetchley main line and the Banbury line for engineering work. Approaching Worcester Tunnel is 47653 with a Manchester to Poole working which includes mostly intercity liveried coaches, being introduced at this time. The semaphore indicates the working will go via Worcester Shrub Hill and then across the Cotswolds to Oxford to rejoin its usual route.
