A picture from the "Ian Allan Network Day" on 24 October 1987. 2-car Derby DMU nos. 51909 + 54271 at St Albans Abbey, having arrived on the 14.55 ex-Watford Junction. We had gone to Watford Junction as the St Albans branch trains were supposed to be worked on this day by a Class 33/1 and 4-TC trailer, but we found that 33102 had failed earlier the same afternoon, and was dumped in a siding at Watford Junction. Lewis Bevan.
