50047 Oxford North Junction 5 September 1984

Sunshine and shadows at Oxford North Junction on 5 September 1984. 50047 Swiftsure heads north with the 1E54 06:50 Paddington to Hull service, which it would work as far as Birmingham New Street. Imagine the enthusiast's interest if it wasn't swapped for a Class 45 or 47 at Birmingham, although in those pre-mobile phone days, not many people would have found out in time.
