55024 Oxford North Junction 25 June 1988

55024 (124) traverses the single track line from Bicester and approaches Oxford North Junction with the 07:59 Bicester Town to Oxford service on 25 June 1988. This was the first up train of the day on the line and at the time was a non-stop service as the intermediate station at Islip was still a year away from re-opening. The curve that 55024 has just traversed is product of the 1970s track rationalisation of the area. Originally this former LMS line carried straight on parallel with the former GWR lines towards Oxford.
