Chiltern Railways are to withdraw its two Class 121 DMU 'Bubble Cars' on the 19th May 2017, due to their old age and the increasing cost of ongoing maintenance.
Currently in use by Chiltern Railways on the route between Aylesbury and Princes Risborough, the diesel trains were introduced in 1960.
Chiltern Railways Engineering Director, Matthew Prior, said: "We will be sad to see these trains go as they are part of railway history and some customers even made special journeys to travel on them".
CR say a small farewell will be held on their last day in traffic.
After the 19th May the service between Aylesbury and Princes Risborough will be operated by Chiltern Railways Class 165 diesel multiple units.
