54416 & 53368 Milton Fen 4 November 1986

An archetypal East Anglian view that has now changed beyond all recognition. 54416 & 53368 cross Milton Fen on 4 November 1986 with the 10:35 Cambridge to Peterborough service. The Cravens units had less than two years left in service, and a few years later this line was electrified, effectively ruining this view. This picture was taken from the A14 Cambridge bypass, and trees growing alongside the road would now make this view impossible anyway.
