1/47278 1403 Euston - Rugby (vice 310, steaming 40L) Sunday Feb 13th 1983

13028347278webr.jpg47278 arrives at Tring, 130283

Around 40 down we were greeted with the unlikely prospect of 47278 steaming in with 9 Mk I's in tow forming

the late running 1403 Euston - Rugby instead of the booked 310 unit. Only the rear 4 coaches were not locked out but the

47 was loud in Tring Cutting. At Bletchley the train was terminated with DMU 56181/50512 going forward.

47278 returned ECS to Wembley to work its return footex to Sheffield.

47278's consist was 25171, 26208, 26047, 34665, 25635, 26054, 26147, 26178, 35419 .

2/ 25268 0802 Bletchley - Bedford St Johns Monday Feb 14th 1983

After a DMU failure the school train needed something kicked out. From the Field Sidings 25268 coupled

up to BG 81461 and BSK 35329 and shunted into the platform. This is probably the train onto which

Bletchley station loaded platform benches onto the BG for the kids to sit on! The 25 presumably returned

on the 0846 Bedford SJ - Bletchley too
