155328 Daylesford 1 April 1990

A wave from the driver, as 155328 passes Daylesford, on the Cotswold Line with the 17:30 Oxford to Great Malvern service on 1 April 1990. These units were built in 1987 by British Leyland at Workington, and following good old BL tradition were beset with problems from the start. They did not last long in the form seen here, most being converted to Class 153 single car units in 1991/2. The Victorian gothic church at Daylesford, seen in the background, is the last resting place of Warren Hastings (1732-1818), the first Governor General of India.
