55029 & L207 Pangbourne 28 April 1993

Three classes of unit can be seen in this picture, taken from the top of the chalk cutting at Pangbourne on 28 April 1993. 55029 (L129) is working in multiple with Class 101 twin set L207 (54396 & 51221) on the 2C68 18:01 Reading to Oxford Network SouthEast 'all stations' local service, while in the background, a Class 165 passes non-stop through Pangbourne station, and is about to overtake the heritage combo, as it works the 1F62 17:20 Paddington to Banbury.
