L407 Radley 27 August 1987

L407 (51342, 59494 & 51384) pulls out of Radley station on 27 August 1987 with the 2C68 17:45 Reading to Oxford Network SouthEast service. It is notably how few passengers there were in the 1980s compared to today's rejuvenated station. Apart from the NSE red lampposts, little investment had taken place at the station for years, and by 1987 it was looking quite run down. The dog seems happy enough though! This view clearly shows that the down platform was formerly an island, with the west face serving the Abingdon Branch.
