53002 & 54047 Combe (Grintleyhill Bridge) 17 October 1987

An everyday picture of a DMU approaching the extremely lofty Grintleyhill Bridge, near Combe on the Cotswold Line, sometime in the 1980s? Look again, as this is something slightly different. The first clue is that it is only a two car unit, very unusual on the Cotswold Line. The second clue is the tiny RCTS headboard! This is in fact the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society's 09:30 Birmingham New Street to Thame 'Tame & Thame' railtour on 17 October 1987, formed of Class 114 set 53002 & 54047. This is the only time that I saw a Class 114 unit on the Cotswold Line.
