B473 Kingham 23 April 1983

B473 (51331, 59483 & 51316) stands at Kingham station on 23 April 1983 with the 2B08 06:06 Reading to Worcester Foregate Street service. This is one of the very few pictures I have of Western Region DMUs in the all over blue livery. The more numerous Pressed Steel 117s had all received either the mostly white, or later blue & grey livery by the time I started taking photos, but the 118s did seem to hang on to their blue livery for a lot longer.
