51652 Thame 9 July 1988

The Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z22 09:25 Marylebone to Chinnor and Thame 'Chinnor Tonic' railtour stands at Thame on 9 July 1988. An unusual DMU combination was used for this tour, with two Class 115 vehicles on the outer ends and two Class 108 vehicles in the centre, all four being driving coaches! 51652 (nearest the camera), 54500, 54222, & 51654 bask in the sun next to the grass grown platforms, which last saw passengers in 1963. This scene has now been completely transformed. The rails and platforms have gone, replaced by a road, with a large industrial estate built on the land to the right, and houses on the land beyond the bridge.
