50026 Oxford (Walton Well Road) 24 April 1984

50026 Indomitable crosses a River Thames backwater as it approaches Oxford station on 24 April 1984 with the 1O23 15:20 Liverpool Lime Street to Poole service, which it had presumably worked from Birmingham New Street. Unfortunately just a little too much of a breeze for a perfect reflection in the water. The industrial buildings which can be glimpsed in the background are part of the famous Lucy's ironworks, which has subsequently closed. Built next to the Oxford Canal, the works were a surprising industrial interlude in an otherwise residential approach to Oxford.
