20065 & 20072 Hinksey 22 October 1985

Although far from common, Class 20s did make occasional appearances at Oxford in the mid 1980s, usually on the morning Speedlink trip working from Bescot. However, on 22 October 1985, 20065 & 20072 are pictured passing Hinksey Yard with a train of gravel, presumably (in view of the traction) from the Midlands. Ironically the wagons in the foreground are what any 20s in the area would usually have dealt with, being MoD containers from Bicester. Note the Royal Corps of Transport branding.
