47172 Oxford 19 May 1979

47172 passes through the centre road of Oxford station on 19 May 1979 with the 1O11 07:10 Bradford Exchange to Weymouth InterCity service. This was running exactly to time, passing Oxford at 12:00, which explains the terrible light angle. The white roof clearly gives away the fact that this was a Stratford allocated loco at the time, and therefore reasonably unusual at Oxford. A couple of months after this picture was taken it was named County of Hertfordshire, a name it retained even when fitted with ETS, and renumbered to 47583
