L211 Oxford (Walton Well Road) 26 May 1990

During the late 1989s and early 1990s, Class 121 trailer 54287 was formed up with Class 101 DMBS 53155 to form set L211. This hybrid unit is pictured approaching Walton Well Road, Oxford, on 26 May 1990 with the 2C14 06:30 Reading to Bicester Town Network SouthEast service. Looking at this view, it is hard to believe that it is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. You would be under no illusions now, as this semi-rural view has been utterly desecrated by a huge range of awful looking tenement blocks.
