50021 Oxford 29 May 1985

On the slightly misty morning of 29 May 1985, 50021 Rodney leaves Oxford station with the 1F11 07:08 departure for Paddington. In contrast to most of the Class 50 hauled trains to the capital, which had limited stops, often only at Reading, this one stopped at all the local stations after Didcot. Consequently, instead of doing the journey in an hour, it took 1 hour 37 minutes.
