165 016 & 165 038, South Ruislip, 7th December 2018
On the left, 165 016 departs from Platform 4 at South Ruislip with 2H27, the 10:20 from High Wycombe to Marylebone service. 165 038 has arrived into Platform 3 as 5R27, the 10:28 ECS working from Wembley LMD and it now forms 2V27, the 10:57 Chiltern "Parliamentary" train to Paddington on the last day of this service. Normally consisting of a two-car unit, it was a three-car unit on this day (apparently, Chiltern wanted to run it as a loco-hauled set!). The line between Park Poyal and Old Oak Common is due to close from the start of the winter timetable (9th December 2018) for HS2 upgrade work, so this service will then run between South Ruislip and West Ealing. 10:42¾, Friday 7th December 2018.
