54289 & 55027 Kingham 4 June 1983

54289 (L289) is propelled towards Kingham station on 4 June 1983 by 55027 (L127). The pair are working the 2A87 09:55 Moreton-in-Marsh to Oxford local service. No way would this view be possible today, as full grown trees now border the line along this stretch. 54289 is one of the few unpowered Class 121 trailers to survive into preservation. It now resides on the East Lancashire Railway (carrying its original 56289 number), where it normally operates with Class 122 55001.
