B596 Oxford (Walton Well Road) 24 April 1984

B596 (51076, 59416 & 51099) passes underneath Walton Well Road bridge, Oxford, on 24 April 1984, as it nears its destination with the 2A81 15:53 Worcester Foregate Street to Oxford service. Note the two red backed signs indicating the ample passenger luggage storage areas, in both the leading DMBC, and second TS vehicles. A far cry from the pathetic provision on modern DMUs. This is definitely my favourite Class 119 picture, with an ideal composition, from the bridge in the background to the shunt signal in the foreground, and in perfect spring sunshine. Kodachrome 64 has done an excellent job of capturing all the detail in the scene.
