51347 & 51401 Castor 19 March 2000

The Nene Valley Railway's Class 117 DMU is formed from vehicles from two different former Western Region sets. DMBS 51347 (seen leading here) came from set L412, and DMS 51401 came from set L421. Whereas the other two vehicles from set L412 have been scrapped, all three vehicles of set L421 are still in existence, although not likely to work together again, as in addition to the Nene Valley Railway, they are at the Northampton & Lamport Railway and the Strathspey Railway! 51347 & 51401 are pictured passing milepost 42 near Castor with the 10:40 Wansford to Peterborough service on 19 March 2000.
