51654 Thame 9 July 1988

The Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z22 09:25 Marylebone to Chinnor and Thame 'Chinnor Tonic' railtour arrives at Thame on 9 July 1988, but not content with stopping at the recently reinstated platform, carries on past the loop, towards the far end of the headshunt, in order to please the track bashers on board. 51654 leads Class 108 vehicles 54500 & 54222, with Class 115 51652 bringing up the rear. Apart from the bridge, everything in this view has now gone, and where the wagon on the right stands is now somebody's back garden.
