309626 & 309616 Broxbourne 2 September 1990

309626 & 309616 pull away from Broxbourne station on 2 September 1990 with the BR / Mencap sponsored Bishops Stortford to Clacton 'Essex Coast Express', taking children with learning difficulties for a day at the seaside. Although the units don't appear to have seen the washer recently, someone has really gone to town on the front end of 309626, seemingly intent on using up their pot of white paint to decorate not just the buffers, but all pipework, windows frames, etc!
