165001 Islip 2 October 2011

165001 accelerates away from Islip station on 2 October 2011 with the 2L08 11:00 Oxford to Bicester Town Chiltern Railways service. I'm not sure how many miles 165001 has covered, but the Honda Accord on the left had 382,000 miles on the clock when this picture was taken (nearly 500,000 now!). Both 165001 and the 'Heritage Honda' now look a little tatty in places, both being built at roughly the same time. Other than routine servicing, the Accord has required no work at all on the engine or transmission, and even has the original clutch!
