117308 Rowington 28 July 1992

One of the very pictures that I have of a Class 117 unit in Regional Railways colours. Displaced from their former Thames Valley duties by Class 165 units, they had a brief stay of exception in the Midlands, before they themselves were replaced by Class 150 units. 117308 (51371, 59509 & 51413) runs alongside the M40 motorway at Rowington on 28 July 1992 with the late running 17:24 Leamington Spa to Birmingham New Street service.
