Details: A flashback to the Acton Works open day of July 1983 now, with a pair of departmental trains in the distinctive yellow livery. To the right is pilot motor car L127, converted from Q38 car 4417 in 1971. This would have worked with similar L126 to power stock moves. Both cars were later preserved by LUL and restored to near original condition. On the left is a pre-1938 stock car, most likely one of the pilot motor cars from L130/131 or L134/135. Two of these four cars also survive but are in a unrestored state at the back of Acton Works, about 100 feet from where this photo was taken! Two more flare-sided surface stock cars can be seen in the background, a red CO/CP on the left and a silver R on the right.
