31170 Bletchingdon 17 June 1983

31170 passes the site of Bletchingdon station on 17 June 1983 with the 4M32 16:25 Morris Cowley to Bescot car train, containing a colourful selection of British Leyland's product. As well as the woeful Austin Maestro, the train also contains a selection of Triumph Acclaims, the one car in the 1980s BL range that was properly engineered, and that was because it was basically a licence built Honda Ballade! The train was running 30 minutes early, as was often the case at the time.
