Car 430 heads the train on the last fan trip as it makes a stop at Collingbourne. The cars' weathered appearance in this scene conveys the lack of attention these cars have received since the suspension of passenger service. Peeking out above the roofline of car 430 is the roof of the Collingbourne passenger shelter and the top of the ubiquitous flag stop semaphore.
