55030 Oxford 29 October 1982

55030 (L130) is less than a minute away from its destination, as it approaches Oxford on 29 October 1982 with the 2A74 09:27 service from Didcot. A dull day, but a scene full of interest, with a train of bridge girders stabled on the left, and the up main line temporarily closed, with a red flag in the four foot. The former Great Western Railway goods shed was demolished the following year, and replaced by an industrial estate.
