L410 Oxford 7 January 1984

L410 (51387, 59497 & 51345) stands at platform 2 at Oxford station on 7 January 1984, having just arrived with the 2A76 09:09 Reading to Oxford service. Taking nearly an hour to cover the 27 miles between the two towns, and stopping at every station, this train was obviously to be avoided if you wanted a speedy journey to Oxford! The platform awning behind the unit dates from the 1971 rebuilding of the station.
