L404 Charlbury 8 May 1987

Charlbury station, pictured from a slightly unusual angle on 8 May 1987. L404 (51379, 59489 & 51337) leaves the station with the 2B52 09:27 Oxford to Hereford service. The car park is extremely full by 1980s standards, although nothing like the current situation, where the several times extended car park is full to capacity by early morning. Of note is the selection of now classic cars, including a Saab 99 and Sunbeam Alpine in the foreground. However, the Bentley in the background was very old even then!
