51382 & 51339 Burrs 5 November 2017

In contrast to the other DMUs taking part in the East Lancashire Railway's DMU Gala on 5 November 2017, the line's resident Class 117 (51382 & 51339) looked decidedly tatty. However, it was no worse than when I photographed it over three decades earlier, on the Cotswold Line. It is pictured here passing Burrs with the 2E36 13:46 Ramsbottom to Bury service.
