L419 South Moreton (Didcot East) 8 November 1986

L419 (51398, 59508 & 51356) rattles along the up relief line at South Moreton on 8 November 1986 with the 10:21 Oxford to Paddington 'all stations' service. Although the Network SouthEast brand had been in use since the summer, virtually no DMUs had received the new colour scheme at the time this picture was taken. Most acquired the discreet stickers that can just bee seen on the centre trailer of L419, but it would be a long time before there were substantial numbers of units in NSE livery.
