45070 Wolvercote 6 October 1979

45070 passes Wolvercote with an unidentified southbound working on 6 October 1979. All is not as it seems here, as the Peak is in fact dead and the whole train is being pushed by the following train, unfortunately out of sight around the corner. I have no idea why I didn't take a picture of the propelling loco (50037) and its train (sheer surprise probably), and as I have been unable to find details of either working I was beginning to think I imagined the whole thing! 45070 was observed later in the day dumped near the old goods shed at Oxford. The spectators on the right are waiting for 7808 & 5900 with a Great Western Society steam tour.
