A countryside walk from Beaconsfield to Amersham took me over the Aylesbury to London line via a footbridge at Little Missenden on the 31st July 1985. There I photographed Class 115 51886 (leading) + 59728 + 59762 + 51887 on a service for Marylebone. It is pictured approaching from the west. S Gaskell.
