53324 Charlbury (Cornbury Park) 26 April 1984

In the 1980s, Cotswold Line local services were usually worked by Pressed Steel Class 117 DMUs, with occasional appearances by the Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Class 118s, Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Class 119s, or the Metro Cammell Class 101s. In virtually all cases these were Western Region allocated sets, but here we see a Midland Region Class 101 set, complete with West Midlands branding, passing Cornbury Park (near Charlbury) on 26 April 1984. 53324 is leading the 2C74 14:15 Oxford to Hereford service.
