L401 Oxford North Junction 12 February 1985

L401 (51333, 59485 & 51375) passes Oxford North Junction on 12 February 1985 with what is presumably either a relief working, or a short term plan empty stock movement. Either way, it doesn't appear in the working timetable. This wide view clearly shows the route of the former LMS line into Oxford, which at this time was just a wide area of open ground running parallel with the former GWR route. The single track line to Bicester can just be seen turning onto the old route by the poplar trees in the background.
