Fortunately for us Mike Roach had made the 200 or so mile journey from Plymouth up to the Culham area.

It was Winston Churchill's Funeral on 30 January 1965. Here are 3 photos of the train taken from 2 negatives. The location is just north of Culham midway between the Station and the bridge across the River Thames. It was a dull miserable day and not a bit conducive to photography, but I had to take it having travelled a couple of hundred miles to do it.
The coffin was in the second vehicle which was a wooden bodied parcels van.
