45058 Oxford 29 May 1985

45058 arrives at a slightly misty Oxford on 29 May 1985 with what appears to be an additional Washwood Heath to Morris Cowley car train or a very early running 6V19 06:32 Bescot to Oxford South Speedlink (confirmation anyone?). The footbridge at Osney Lane, just to the south of Oxford station was an ideal vantage point for early morning photography in the 1980s, with a variety of angles possible. Unfortunately this was completely ruined when the tracks that the 'Peak' is negotiating were ripped up and the area turned into a car park. Note the blue van on the right with the words 'oxygen van' painted on the side. This was being used by the scrapyard which is just out of view to the right.
