L423 & L401 Bicester Town 2 May 1992

L423 (51399, 59513 & 51361) brings up the rear of the Oxon & Bucks Rail Action Committee 07:00 Oxford to Spalding (via Fenny Stratford and Bedford) special, as it approaches Bicester Town on 2 May 1992. Classmate L401 (51333, 59485 & 51375) is the leading unit. This location has changed considerably since this picture was taken. The green fields on the left have now been replaced by the Bicester Village shopping centre. Although at first sight this appears to be a double track line, the track on the right was at the time only a headshunt for the nearby MoD Bicester. Now the double track has been reinstated, and Bicester Town station (just visible in the background) has been rebuilt, and controversially renamed Bicester Village.
