165001 Bledlow 5 October 2013

Unusual surroundings for a Class 165 unit. 165001 emerges from the trees at Bledlow, on the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway, with the Chiltern Railways 1Z02 09:35 Aylesbury to Chinnor special on 5 October 2013. Although the electronic destination blind never photographs correctly, it is in fact displaying the slightly optimistic 'Watlington Flyer' wording. This train is the first ever direct Aylesbury to Chinnor service, and it seems that being over 22 years old, the prototype Turbo unit has started to acquire historic interest, and was specially requested for this train.
