L401 Oxford 20 August 1989

L401 (51333, 59485, & 51375) pulls away from a deserted Oxford station on Sunday 20 August 1989. Note the framework for the new station building being constructed on the right. This is a bit of a mystery working, and I can only assume it is a last minute DMU substitute for the 1F04 09:30 Oxford to Paddington loco hauled service, presumably cancelled due to a loco failure. In this instance the Didcot destination blind is correct, because it certainly didn't go the capital, as it was back in Oxford in time to work its next booked train - the 11:00 to Didcot.
