A 4-car set approaching Ampthill tunnel on down main. Thought to be taken in 1960, at a time when 115s were also used on the St.Pancras - Bedford services. The underframe arrangement on the first vehicle seems to suggest this is a Class 115. Photo by Jim Lawrence. Ian McDonald Collection.

A Class 115 set sits in London St.Pancras station about to depart with the 1.35pm to Bedford on January 21st, 1961. Some of these worked this line with the 127s before transferring to Marylebone. If the power unit can be seen it is a 115 set, on a 127 they are further underneath. Michael Mensing.

Two dmus & a Ford Transit van at the London terminus of the Great Central Railway's extension, at Marylebone on 31st December 1975. It opened 76 years earlier & was virtually unchanged. The right-hand train is departing for Aylesbury. Before privatisation British Rail removed the right-hand platforms & roof during the 1990 remodelling. However the platform awning on the far right was retained and fitted to the left-hand span. However with the increase in traffic the station proved to be too small & additional platforms were opened by Chiltern Railways. Pete LG99.
