L416 Hinksey 22 October 1985

L416 (51353, 59505 & 51395) passes Hinksey Yard on 22 October 1985 with the 2A53 14:06 Oxford to Paddington service. The dark green colour of the containers parked in the foreground immediately gives away the fact that this is an MoD train, although the 'Royal Corps of Transport' lettering on the sides leaves no doubt! The containers are part of the 6A50 13:56 Bicester to Morris Cowley Speedlink working, which would later be split, with non military traffic going to Cowley, and these vehicles heading for Bicester army depot.
