56025 & 56022 Blackbird Leys 18 August 1991

Part of the attraction of the Pathfinder Tours 1Z36 06:28 Manchester Piccadilly to Paddington 'Strider' railtour on 18 August 1991 was the traversal of the Morris Cowley branch, near Oxford. 56025 & 56022 are pictured passing Blackbird Leys in a lucky patch of sun returning from Morris Cowley. The Rover car plant, the source of traffic on the branch, can be seen in the background.
