53444 Wellingborough 12 December 1985

Hardly ideal photographic conditions, with the foreground still in shade, but this picture is included here as it is one of my few pictures of a Class 104 unit in blue livery. 53444 leads this mixed livery three coach set past the deserted yards between Wellingborough and Finedon Road on 12 December 1985. It is working the 09:30 Kettering to Bletchley service. 53444 was withdrawn in May 1989 and cut up at Vic Berry's, Leicester during October 1990.
