50008 Langham 11 June 1979

50008 Thunderer glints in the late evening sunshine as it passes Langham (near Ivybridge) with the 6A21 16:40 St Erth to Acton milk tanks on 11 June 1979. The conveyance of milk from the West Country by rail was only destined to last for another year. Thenceforth it would be road tankers on the M5. Such is progress!
