47843 Oxford 24 July 1990

I very rarely take pictures on stations, but occasionally I used to spend a few hours on Oxford station in the days before you were regarded as a criminal for simply being on the platform with a camera. On a brilliantly sunny 24 July 1990, passengers board the 1M61 17:50 Paddington to Liverpool Lime Street InterCity service headed by 47843. The footbridge in the background had only just opened at this time, replacing the earlier subway. 47052 can just be seen lurking in shadows in the bay platform
