Bubble Car to stay on the main line
Both of the Class 121 bubble Cars recently taken out of service by Chiltern Railways have found a secure future, with one destined for main line use as a route learner and the other for a career in preservation.
Blue-liveried 121020 (55020) is moving to the Bodmin & Wenford Railway where it is to be used in heritage passenger service. It will become the tenth member of its class to enter preservation. Meanwhile, green-liveried 121034 (55034) has been bought by LNWR Heritage at Crewe and is to be used as a main line route learner. It will join classmate and former Sandite unit 55022, which went to Crewe a year ago.
Both units travelled under their own power from Aylesbury to Tyseley on October 13 for onward movement to their new homes.
