47803 Oxford 27 December 1993

In the mid 1990s, 47803 carried a striking livery based on the InterCity colour scheme, but with the entire upper bodyside in yellow instead of grey. Originally it also had the word 'Infrastructure' in huge letters along the bodyside. With a good coating of grime still not toning down this bright apparition, it pulls away from Oxford station on 27 December 1993 with the 1O12 07:10 Edinburgh to Bournemouth 'Wessex Scot'.
