B430 Claydon (Gloucestershire) 4 August 1987

Looking a little weather-beaten after over two years in its GWR 150 chocolate & cream livery, B430 (51368, 59520 & 51410) passes Claydon (Gloucestershire) on 4 August 1987 with the 2B09 06:36 Swindon to Worcester Shrub Hill service. With no way of knowing in those days which particular unit would be working this train, it was a definite bonus to get a picture of the only Class 117 to wear this colour scheme.
