April 27th, 1963 was F.A. Cup semi-final day and the match at Villa Park was Man. Utd. vs Southampton which the former won by the only goal scored on that occasion. There were 10 specials from Southampton to Birmingham that were routed via the GWR line to Birmingham via Banbury and nine of those saw Bulleid pacific haulage throughout. This one, hauled by 34045 Ottery St. Mary, is depicted passing through Harbury station.
