168111 Hatton 1 August 2011

168111 rounds the curve at Hatton on 1 August 2011 with the 1H40 12:55 Birmingham Moor Street to Marylebone Chiltern Railways service. This view clearly shows the weak design feature of these (and other) units. The valance on either side of the coupler is just not up to the job. This one being typical, with chunks missing, and numerous cracks visible.
