165030 Kings Sutton 19 May 1998

The hawthorn is in full flower at Kings Sutton on 19 May 1998 as 165030 heads north with the 16:45 Marylebone to Birmingham Snow Hill Chiltern Railways service. Still no signs of the new owners on this Network SouthEast liveried unit. With hindsight I should have taken more pictures of NSE units on the route, but at least I have more pictures of them than my ridiculously poor coverage of the formerly used Class 115 units. Despite the infrequent service on the line in the 1980s, the fact that the line was reasonably local makes the omission inexcusable.
