This Class 127 in Cricklewood station in the summer of 1983 had been given a thorough clean, service and the paintwork touched up at Cricklewood depot.

The set then made a number of trial runs with various Greek officials onboard. Sadly nothing came of the affair. Note the white gutter the length of the train. Arno Brooks.
