L407 Hinksey 3 March 1984

L407 (51342, 59494 & 51384) passes Hinksey on 3 March 1984 with the 2A65 12:35 Oxford to Paddington service. It's hard to believe now that in the 1980s the footbridge over the line at the north end of Hinksey Yard offered such a completely uninterrupted view of the Oxford skyline. Note the crane in the background, at work on the construction of Oxford's ice rink.
