L842 South Moreton 6 May 1992

Thames Valley Class 101 sunset. Shortly before being ousted by the new Class 165s, L842 (53314, 59101 & 53327) runs along the up main line at South Moreton (as booked) with the 5C68 ECS to Reading. Normally this would start from Didcot Parkway at 18:46, after the unit had worked the 2C68 18:01 Reading to Didcot Parkway Network SouthEast service. However, on this occasion it seems that the train had been extended to Oxford, which explains why this was running half an hour late.
