50044 Exeter hurries a Paddington bound train through Taplow on the Up Slow line in 1981. Thankfully the former D444 was preserved and, over thirty years later, is still main line registered. The Austin Maxis will not have been so fortunate.

A Pressed Steel Class 117 suburban DMU leaves the Up slow line platform at Taplow heading for Paddington in 1981. When these 1st generation units were eventually replaced by Thames Turbo units some of them were cascaded to Haymarket and, in the 1990s, were among the last early DMUs in service.
