55024 Chinnor 8 July 2018

55024 stands in the sunshine at Chinnor on 8 July 2018. The unit has been repainted by the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway to match the condition it was in when it visited the line in 1999, but this time with more seats and less sandite equipment! In the windscreen it is displaying its former departmental number (960010), as well as the slightly optimistic Paddington destination. Behind it is 55023, which I photographed in a similar position in 2013.
