47826 Oxford (Walton Well Road) 26 May 1990

47826 just avoids the early morning shadows at Walton Well Road, Oxford,, as it heads north with the 1S52 06:03 Paddington to Glasgow Central InterCity service on 26 May 1990. You would not normally think of journeying from London to Scotland via Oxford, and this was one of those oddities that littered the 1980s & 1990s passenger timetables. It was also the first early morning departure from Paddington to Oxford on a Saturday morning at the time. Note the full catering vehicle at the head of the train, not bad when there are only seven coaches in total!
