37884 Worcester 31 August 2017

The final train of off lease Class 319 EMUs for storage at Long Marston ran on 31 August 2017, hauled as usual by 37884. The 5V94 11:14 Bedford Cauldwell Depot to Long Marston arrived at Worcester just a few minutes early, and luckily left the yard in very welcome sunny spell. It is seen here passing the former Metal Box factory just to the south of Shrub Hill station. The units are 319443 & 319440. The semaphore signal is due for imminent removal, its replacement can already be seen waiting to be installed.
