165030 & 165105 Goring 27 May 1992

It is extremely unlikely that these two units will have ever worked together in more recent times. Class 165/0 165030 & Class 165/1 165105 accelerate away from Goring on 27 May 1992 with the 1F66 17:38 Paddington to Didcot Parkway Network SouthEast service. The Thames Valley's new Class 165/1s were not being delivered quickly enough, and so during 1992 various members of the 165/0 fleet were drafted in to help out. When more 165/1s became available, 165030 would have been returned to the Chiltern Line, where it still works to this day, whilst 165105 carried on working in the Thames Valley. Like many of the hired in 165/0s, 165030 is completely devoid of set numbers.
