87022 Hinksey 2 January 2008

I don't normally bother with light engine moves, and certainly not with going away shots, but this working is just so unusual that it had to be recorded. I presume 25kV electric locos have been dragged through Oxford before, but other than en-route to various open days, I can't recall when. 37038 tows 87022 Cock o' the North as the 0Z87 11:46 Oxley to Wembley on 2 January 2008, seen here passing Hinksey Yard. The wording on the wreath reads: '87 WCML 87 gone but not forgotten'.
