47011 Oxford 2 July 1985

47011 accelerates away from Oxford on 2 July 1985 with the 3V19 09:35 Oxford to Old Oak Common empty newspaper vans, running very early, as was often the case. 47011 had a relatively low key life, only ever carrying two numbers (D1538 & 47011), and only having two different liveries. Admittedly its former two tone green livery latterly had full yellow ends, and as can be seen here, whilst in BR blue it later acquired a grey roof. It was withdrawn in 1987, and this is the only time that I photographed it.
