Almost 21 years to the day since Corby station had closed in 1966, rail services were reinstated. Trains shuttled between Kettering and Corby, provided by dmus based at Bletchley and operated by Network SouthEast. Initially there were two Gloucester RCW class 122 "bubble cars" dedicated to the service, embellished with the Corby coat of arms. Here, in the first week of service, M55004 climbs out of Kettering with an afternoon train on 16/4/87. New signals are in place but there are still four tracks, a situation that will change at the end of 1987. The "Jockloper" lasted barely more than three years, though in 2008 a more permanent service again re-connected Corby to the outside world. Mike Dean.
