C941 Moreton-in-Marsh 27 June 1987

An extremely rare DMU for the Cotswold Line. C941 (51562, 59694 & 51922) leaves Moreton-in-Marsh station on 27 June 1987 with the 2A26 08:08 Hereford to Oxford service. Normally the DMU diagrams on the Cotswold Line at the time were covered by Class 117 or 119s, with occasional appearances by Classes 101 & 121. This use of a Class 108 unit would in itself be very unusual, but this particular set includes a Class 110 'Calder Valley' centre car! Most of these were scrapped when the Class 110s were reduced to two car units in 1983. I took the going away shot, as the red buffer beam and silver painted buffers and multiple working connectors only featured on this end.
