L402 & L415 Marshfield 27 October 1984

A pair of Reading allocated Class 117s well away from their usual patch on 27 October 1984. L402 (51377, 59487 & 51335) & L415 (51351, 59503 & 51393) pass Marshfield with the late running 08:48 Cardiff Central to Weston-super-Mare service. Both of these units would normally operate Thames Valley services out of Paddington, with Bristol or Cardiff units being more normal in South Wales. Obviously there would be a number of people going to Bristol on a Saturday morning, but six coaches through to Weston in the autumn is probably an extravagance!
