54047 & 53002 Northwood Lane 14 October 1989

Superb lighting at Northwood Lane, on the Severn Valley Railway, on 14 October 1989. In addition to the normal preserved diesel locomotives, the line had a visiting BR multiple unit for their diesel gala. The Class 114s were nearing the end of their life at the time, and Tyseley set T022 (54047 & 53002) was chosen to represent the fast diminishing heritage DMU fleet. It is seen here passing Northwood Lane, en-route from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster. No doubt some of the waiting photographers ignored it, as it just a DMU, despite the very brief burst of well timed sunshine.
