156407 Water Orton 17 March 1989

156407 approaches Water Orton under a dramatic sky on 17 March 1989 with the 10:41 Birmingham New Street to Norwich service. At the time this was Regional Railway's latest acquisition, the Metro Cammel built units replacing various first generation DMUs on cross-country services. 156407 had entered service in May 1988, being built at the now demolished Washwood Heath works, only a few miles from where this picture was taken.
