L403 Hinksey 27 September 1986

A view of Hinksey Yard on 27 September 1986, before it became the busy 'Virtual Quarry' ballast dump that it is today. It is also before the trees between the railway and the lake partly obscured the view of the spires of Oxford in the distance. L403 (51378, 59488 & 51336) passes by the lines of abandoned vans and ZHV open wagons, as it nears its destination with the 12:49 Paddington to Oxford Network SouthEast service.
