L418 Ascott-under-Wychwood 30 June 1987

L418 (51397, 59507, & 51355) pulls away from Ascott-under-Wychwood station on 30 June 1987 with the 07:45 Moreton-in-Marsh to Reading local service. Presumably the unit later worked on to Paddington which would make the destination blind correct, and yet the timetable shows it as a Moreton-in-Marsh to Oxford service, with a separate working onwards to Reading. The prominent 75mph restriction sign applies to the double track section which commences near the signal box in the background. The single line from here to Oxford is cleared for 90mph running.
