50024 & 47478 Oxford 2 April 1983

Presumably heading back to Old Oak Common depot, 50024 Vanguard hauls 47478 through the centre road at Oxford station on 2 April 1983. Locos on test from Old Oak Common were often used on trains to Oxford, but I do not know if this was the case on this occasion, as I had only just arrived when this pair appeared from the north.
