51890 Kings Sutton 17 March 1990

This has got to be someone's idea of a joke. Even allowing for the gradual change over from blue and grey to Network SouthEast liveried stock in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the alternating colours in this Class 115 unit must be deliberate! 51890 leads the 14:20 Banbury to Marylebone Network SouthEast service as it accelerates away from Kings Sutton on 17 March 1990. Unfortunately this location is no longer quite as clear as this, as the young ash trees on the left are now fully grown.
