L573 Kingham 23 April 1983

L573 (51083, 59417 & 51055) arrives at Kingham station on 23 April 1983 with the 2A83 08:12 Great Malvern to Oxford service. The reason for all the extra people standing around (some even on the car park side of the fence) is that approaching from the other direction was a test run of BR's great hope for a first generation DMU replacement - the extremely good, but unfortunately much too expensive Class 210.
