50031 & 50049 Oxford 13 July 2002

50031 Hood & 50049 Defiance arrive at Oxford on 13 July 2002 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z27 08:10 Reading to York 'Yorkshire Excursion' railtour. A pair of blue 50s without a headboard makes an excellent picture, although the harsh mid summer backlighting is not ideal. The bridge in the background is the Osney Lane footbridge, well known to photographers since the days of steam.
