L416 Oxford 1 August 1986

L416 (51395, 59505 & 51353) arrives at Oxford on 1 August 1986 with the 2B08 06:04 Reading to Worcester Foregate Street Network SouthEast service. The inaccurate destination blind is not at all unusual, although in this case the train does actually call at Oxford. On other occasions I have seen DMUs on the Cotswold Line displaying such unlikely destinations as Salisbury and Radyr! The unit is approaching Oxford station along the up relief line, so that it can call at platform 1, as per the working timetable.
