47587 Ruskin College Oxford Nameplate 3 October 1990

47587 received the name Ruskin College Oxford at Oxford station on 3 October 1990. The nameplate is pictured here in the rain just after the covering had been removed, but before the crest had been uncovered. This is actually before the official unveiling, and the photo was quickly taken before the curtains were put in place! The unveiling was performed by Dr Stephen Yeo (Principal of Ruskin College). This was a double naming, along with 47547, and both locos made their way back light engine to Old Oak Common shortly after the event.
