47547 University of Oxford Nameplate 3 October 1990

47547 was named University of Oxford on 3 October 1990 by the Oxford University Chancellor, The Right Honourable Lord Jenkins of Hillhead. The ceremony took place at Oxford station, and this picture shows the nameplate and crest just after the plastic covering had been removed but just prior to the curtains being placed in front ready for the unveiling. This was a double naming, along with 47587, and both locos made their way back light engine to Old Oak Common shortly after the event.
