54122 & 53359 Woburn Sands 29 May 1988

54122 & 53359 pull away from Woburn Sands whilst working the 12:55 Bletchley to Bedford service on 29 May 1988. This was one of a number of special services on the line in connection with the Bedford River Festival. As can be seen from the amount of cloud in the background, this was one of those annoying days when getting the short sunny spells to correspond with the trains wasn't easy, and this was one of the few sunny shots of the day. Although a haven for heritage DMUs at the time, this green liveried Class 105 was certainly not the usual motive power on the line.
