55023 Oxford North Junction 5 September 1984

55023 (L123) passes Oxford North Junction on 5 September 1984 with the 2V70 07:53 Banbury to Oxford service. This is one instance where the modern equivalent actually provides more accommodation than used to be the case. These trains are now at least a two car unit. Despite massively increased patronage, a lot of trains in the Oxford area are shorter than they used to be in the 1980s. This short vehicle allows an uninterrupted view of the Oxford North Junction pointwork.
