L210 Oxford 18 July 1990

L210 (53083 & 54289) accelerates away from Oxford station on 18 July 1990 with the 2C59 17:15 Banbury to Reading Network SouthEast service. This unit is an interesting Class 116/121 combination, utilising the DMBS vehicle from former Cardiff allocated set C307, and one of the few Class 121 trailers that were still in service at this time. When the 121 vehicle was withdrawn the following year, it was replaced by Class DTCL 54381. The splendid crop of weeds growing in the sidings would make a latter day Network Rail envious!
