117306 (51411 leading) stands on the buffer stops of 'E' road at Aylesbury Depot, being for spares for the Sandite units based there at the time. As can be seen the unit has had it's destination blind box removed and the '6' on the unit number has been patchwork painted. The unit was transferred from Shoeburyness to Aylesbury in one trip, sandwiched between Class 121 units, although 117306 was running too. Taken on 27/09/00, this is reasonably soon after it had moved to Aylesbury. Greg Scott.
